History of Victoria, Texas
That favored bit of Texas known today as Victoria County, is the very place where the history of Texas began. Our first history is Spanish Colonial. It began in the early 1500’s. We get the first detailed accounts of the flora and fauna, as well as geographical features once the French explorer, René Robert Cavalier, Sieur de La Salle arrives in 1685 and establishes a colony near the southern tip of present day Victoria County.
