Welcome to Baytown

In 1916, the Humble Oil & Refining Company built the first offshore drilling operation in Texas in Baytown. The company later built the Baytown Refinery, which would become one of the largest Exxon-Mobil Refineries in the world. The area of Baytown began to be settled as early as 1822. One of its earliest residents was Nathaniel Lynch, who set up a ferry crossing at the junction of the San Jacinto River and Buffalo Bayou. The ferry service is still in operation today. Other early residents of Baytown include William Scott, one of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred.
