San Jacinto State Historical Park
Mo to Fr from 10:00 AM to 05:00 PMSan Jacinto State Historical Park is the battleground where Texas won its independence from Mexico in 1836. After the Alamo, General Santa Anna's large force chased Sam Houston's small army across Texas and was soundly defeated at this site. A limestone and concrete monument rises 570 feet above the coastal flatlands to pay tribute to the historical event. At the base of the monument you will find the Museum of Texas History, and the Battleship Texas is berthed in the ship channel at the edge of the park.
