Baytown shares a bay with the San Jacinto monument, the famous location where General Sam Houston defeated General Santa Ana marking the end of the Texas Revolutionary War in 1836. However, Baytown has a long history stretching back thousands of years.
Today, Baytown is largely a community centered on industry, including oil, rubber and chemical plants. Home to petrochemical giants, including ExxonMobil and Chevron Philips, Baytown serves an international community through the Port of Houston and Houston Ship Channel which reach 1,053 ports worldwide.
