  History
Continued . . .

In 1528, Cabeza de Vaca was shipwrecked on this coast and lived with the Karankawas for six years. By 1825, the area bustled with sugar cane and cotton trade that was first under Spanish, then Mexican authority. More recently, prairies were converted to farm fields and ranchers grazed cattle on what eventually became the refuges.
