San Jacinto Museum of History

In 1836, the Battle of San Jacinto effectively changed the shape of history and paved the way for Texas to become a nation and subsequently a state. In 1939, the Museum was built in the monument to the historic event, and since then has provided materials related to the history of the region and the state.
