This area was developed intensively after 1893, when the Myers Brothers Investment Company of Duluth, MN, operated by Benjamin F., Henry H. and Jacob R. Myers, along with fellow Duluth residentCaptain Augustus Benjamin Wolvin (1857-1932), purchased 10,000 acres of land near Shoal Point on Galveston Island for use as an ocean-going port. They produced a township plat for Texas City on 05/17/1893 and began dredging near the site in 1894. By 1898, the Duluth syndicate developed a railroad spur line to serve their new port. In 1905, the US Federal Government named Texas City an official port of customs sites, and by 1908, a larger oil refinery, that of the Texas City Refining Company, opened a new facility here. Residential real estate was platted here to provide homes for port and refinery workers by about 1910.
