Texas was born after the Battle of San Jacinto and the signing of a peace treaty that granted Texas freedom from Mexico. The battle took place in and around Deer Park, a city with the slogan, “The Birthplace of Texas.” The cabin where the treaty was drafted, called Patrick’s Cabin, has been replicated into a museum. Tour the San Jacinto Historical Museum and Monument and learn more about this community’s history.
Deer Park is 17 miles southeast of Houston, five miles east of Pasadena, eight miles from Galveston Bay, and 38 miles from Galveston and the Gulf of Mexico’s beautiful beaches. It is home to the Deer Park ISD, San Jacinto College, two community theaters, an outdoor pool, and 150 acres of parks.
