|La Porte Heritage Society|
If the past is your passion, you’ll love the expertise of the Bay Area Heritage Society. La Porte was a major tourist destination in the early 20th Century. Known in many circles as the “Coney Island of the South,” La Porte was a regular stop on the Moonlight Express train that ran from Houston to the Train Depot, which is now the Old Sylvan Beach Depot Museum. The Heritage Society manages the Museum, and they are a fantastic resource for all things historical in the City of La Porte.
