Bay City, Texas

Bay City is located at the junction of State Highways 35 and 60 in the north central portion of Matagorda county approximately 90 miles southwest of Houston. Initially established in 1894, the city was named Bay City because of its location on the Bay Prairie. Home to nearly 19,000 residents, Bay City has become a thriving community and the center of the largest rice-producing area in the United States.

By the mid-1900s, a canning plant, a bottling works, a hollow-tile factory, two rice mills, two gins, three hatcheries, and six dairies were established in Bay City. In 1960, the Celanese Chemical Company built a petrochemical plant that would become Bay City's largest employer. Between 1960 and 1970 an airport was constructed and a barge canal was built to connect Bay City to the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. The manmade port of Bay City was finished, and an inflatable rubber dam was developed to impound water for rice irrigation. Between the 1970s and the early 1990s, the city's population grew and the number of businesses increased. The city limits were expanded to include more than six square miles. The South Texas Nuclear Project (later known as the South Texas Project), and Occidental Chemical Company were established. Also by the early 1990s, Bay City was served by the Union Pacific and the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railways and was a shipping center for the county’s oil industry.
