Fort Travis Seashore Park

Located on the southern tip of the Bolivar Peninsula along the Texas Gulf Coast, Fort Travis Seashore Park was once the site of many fortifications – some dating back to 1816. Jane Long, known as the "mother of Texas," defended a fort at the site in her early 20s. The construction on Fort Travis was completed in 1899 in the Houston area.

The sea wall, still present today, was constructed in 1900. The fort was home to troops that defended the Port of Galveston and was expanded in 1942 to station 2,500 troops. In 1949 the fort was dismantled leaving only the seawall. Visitors today to the 60-acre park will see the grassy areas, picnic areas and BBQ grills along with the sea wall.
