What began as not much more than a trading post in 1825 has grown to over 850 acres of port facilities today. Established by a proclamation issued by the Congress of Mexico on October 17, 1825, while the land known as Texas still belonged to Mexico, the Port of Galveston became the oldest port in the Gulf of Mexico west of New Orleans.
