The county of San Jacinto, located east of the Texas state, was established in 1869 and organized in 1870. It was named after the Battle of San Jacinto, which has secured the state’s independence. This county has been economically dependent on its timber, farming, and ranching industries; timber remains to be its most significant product, but beef cattle and forages were its major agricultural crops. It also features picturesque historical and recreational sites from the Old Jail Museum to the Sam Houston National Forest. Moreover, Tex-Mex, Southwestern, Indian, American cuisines, along with numerous seafood restaurants, are dominant in this county.
