Cedar Point

Cedar Point, east of Beach City in extreme west central Chambers County, was the site of the Sam Houston's summer home on Trinity Bay known as Raven Moor. Houston purchased the home from John Iiam's wife, Tabitha Harris, in 1837 and used it until 1862. A centennial marker was placed near the site in 1936 and a county historical marker in 1986. A highly productive nearby oilfield developed in 1935 and was named for Cedar Point.
