A tale of rebirth and courage. Yes, Deer Park really is the Birthplace of Texas. In 1836, Santa Anna signed the surrender of Texas at the cabin of Dr. George Moffit Patrick, our first stop on the tour. Tough, hard-working local farmers clung to their farms until a formal town was founded in 1893 by Simeon Henry West from Illinois. Freezes, floods and diseases drove out the weak and unwilling. Those who stayed, however, rebuilt the town in 1928, and at last, with the help of Shell Oil, the delightful and lovely little town of Deer Park was incorporated in 1948.
