Named for Major General Thomas Jefferson Chambers, a key figure in the Texas Revolution, Chambers County comprises one of nine of the greater Houston metropolitan area. With the Gulf of Mexico at the Southeastern boundary, the County was critical to the settlement of the region during the nineteenth century. The County also contains portions of the Trinity and Galveston Bay. The First Spanish mission was founded in 1756, and European and American influences shaped the local culture for the following decades. Chambers County is now home to the Anahuac and Moody National Wildlife Refuges which protect the local eco-systems.
Produced by the Texas Land Commission under the direction of Civil War Veteran William C. Walsh, this classic depiction captures a rare glimpse into the history and development of the County. After his tenure with the commission, Walsh directed the initial survey for the one-hundred acres that would become the University of Texas at Austin. This map bears a signature, minimal style that was heavily utilized by the Land Commission and used to verify subsequent surveys and other official land documents. Another interesting feature of these maps is that they allow historians and genealogists to track and maintain the land ownership records for the area to create historical narratives that depict the evolution of the region.
Numerous groups of immigrants founded neighborhoods and communities along cultural lines in the towns and cities of the area, many of which exist to this day. This is an authentic piece of American cartographical history.
