  History
Continued . . .

For centuries, these people had piled discarded shells near bays that gradually became shell mounds where trees took root. Today, those small tree groves serve as magnets to migrating songbirds looking for a resting perch after a long flight over the Gulf. Look for them especially at Texas Point NWR. The mounds also memorialize the presence of these first peoples of the Texas Gulf Coast.
