The city was originally known as Prairie View owing to its location on upper Texas coastline’s grasslands. The town’s name would, in 1938, be changed to Bridge City. This was after the construction of the Port Arthur-Orange Bridge. All the attempts to have the area incorporated failed until 1970 it was formally incorporated.
