About Houston County

The original boundaries of Houston County also included all of present-day Anderson and Trinity Counties, and portions of present-day Henderson and Polk Counties. Houston County bears no relationship, save its namesake, with the City of Houston, which is located approximately 100 miles to the south, in Harris County. A county historical museum is located in a former railroad depot at 303 S. First Street in Crockett. Some 200 Texas Historical Commission markers identify historical sites and events. Leading attractions in the county include the site of the San Francisco de los Tejas Mission, Davy Crockett National Forest, a visitor's center and museum in the 1909 Crockett Depot, Houston County Lake, and Lake Ratcliff. The area also offers numerous venues for fishing, swimming, hiking, and other outdoor activities.
