Port Isabel’s recorded his-

tory stretches back centuries, to

when it was first charted by

Spanish explorer, Capt. Alonzo

de Piñeda. It was a wild place,

made of salt prairies and ‘lomas’

— densely vegetated sand dunes

— and remained sparsely popu-

lated by Europeans until the 18th

Century.

In the early 1770s, a small

fishinJ YillaJe was established

at whatwas then known as “El

Fronton de Santa Isabella.” The

Republic of Texas may have de-

clared its independence in 1836,

but the southern border of Texas

was an ever-changing grey line

for several years afterwards. In

the spring of 1846, just months

after Texas had joined the Union,

U.S. Army Gen. Zachary Taylor

and his troops entered the town,

ushering in the Mexican Ameri-

can War. Taylor renamed the

coastal town Point Isabel.

It wasn’t until 1852, though,

that Port Isabel’s most well-

known landmark, the lighthouse,

was built. The lighthouse became

an important symbol during the

Civil War, when the town of

Point Isabel was alternately con-

trolled by Union and Confeder-

ate forces. In fact, the last battle

of the Civil War was fought just

nine miles from the town on May

15, 1865 two months after Gen.

Robert E. Lee surrendered in Ap-

pomattox, Virginia. The Battle of

Palmito Hill was a Confederate

victory, until news of the war’s

end forced them to surrender to

the Union soldiers they had de-

feated.

Today, Port Isabel is a peaceful

town known for its world-class

sports fishinJ its shrimpinJ in

-

dustry, and its unrivaled views of

the Laguna Madre, or Mother La-

Joon which Áows between 6outh

Padre Island and the mainland.
