The US city of Anahuac is located in Chambers County in Texas State — in the southeast of the state. The city had a population of 2,243 as per the 2010 census. The city also serves Chambers County’s county seat. It was declared the state’s alligator capital in 1989, and it holds annual alligator festivals. The name Anahuac can be traced to the language of Aztecs known as Nahuatl. It has numerous meanings, including city, world, center, and capital. Interestingly, neither the city nor the state has ever been part of the Aztec Empire. The city’s first dwellers were the Caddo and Atakapan. It was called “Perry’s Point” in the 19th Century in honor of Colonel Harry Perry. Perry built a military post in the city in 1816.
