East Texas City
From Rugged Landscapes To Diverse Heritage
Something About Weches
This town is the entry to Mission Tejas State Park, a site honoring the first Spanish mission in the Texas wilderness around 1690. A 1930s-era interpretation of Mission San Francisco de los Tejas stands in the park, which is located in the Davy Crockett National Forest. Visitors can also see the restored 1828 Rice Family Log Home, where travelers along the section of El Camino Real de los Tejas known as the Old San Antonio Road sometimes stopped during the pioneer era.
