Morgan's Point Texas Real Estate and Community Information!
If you are looking to live in a small town near the ocean, take a look at Morgan's Point TX. Located on Galveston Bay, the town has a population of 339 as of the 2010 census. Originally settled in 1822, the area was first used for growing lemon and orange trees. It was all but destroyed during the Texas Revolution, but in the late 1800's it started making a comeback as the shipping industry began to grow in the area. With the Texas Oil Boom, the Bay became a much sought after location for the wealthy to vacation during the summer. Today the town is a bedroom community for the nearby city of Houston, but still includes many of the old mansions from the early 20th century.
