Established in the 1830s by the Mexican Government as the capital of Texas, Anahuac (pronounced "anna-WHACK") is one of the oldest settlements in Texas. It was at Fort Anahuac that Texans first rose up in opposition to the Mexican Government, a resistance which culminated in the Texans winning their freedom from Mexico in 1836. There are over 30 official Texas Historical Markers throughout the area, including a 1936 Centennial Marker, commemorating this historical site and the people, places and events which ultimately led to Texas` independence.
In addition to its historical significance, Anahuac and the surrounding area is a naturalist's delight! With its prolific wildlife and its beautiful waterways and estuaries, Anahuac attracts a cross-section of tourists from bird watchers to hunters and fishermen.
The City of Anahuac is the county seat for Chambers County and is the home of over 2200 people.
