La Porte TX History


La Porte was incorporated in 1982 making it the oldest incorporated town in east Harris County. The town became a popular option for homebuyers because of Sylvan Beach Park. La Porte became a resort town primarily. World War II and several hurricanes destroyed the resort.

NASA and the Bayport Channel set up headquarters in the neighborhood. In 1984, the town was built through the Johnson Hunter, David Harris, and Pearsall grants.

Investors Tom Lee, the Yorks, and I.R. Homes formed the La Porte Land and Town Company. They retained the area at Morgan’s Point. It was intended for wharves and warehouses. For the town, they moved it further inland.

In 1892, a sale of lots of La Porte was held. One of the first buyers was E.P. Sereau. He built a general mercantile building in the area. He also became La Porte's first Postmaster.

In 1895, the railroad had laid track from Houston to La Porte. In1898, the La Porte Improvement Company rose and developed an area just east of the existing La Porte town. This development led to making Lobit Street the main business street in East La Porte. Several establishments moved to Lobit Street.

The chemical industry and shipyards of World War II revitalized the town. In 1945, the Du Pont plant, NASA, the Bayport Channel, and the Barbour’s Cut terminal supported the growth in the area. In 1980, the town of Lomax and La Porte consolidated. In 1987, the Bayshore Municipal Utility district was annexed to the town.

Today, La Porte TX is an independent city. It features a hybrid council-manager form of government.
