Two Spanish explorers in the 16th and 17th centuries were the first Europeans to visit this area and settled near El Paso in 1682. A French colony also existed for a time at Matagorda Bay. Americans started to settle at the edge of the Brazos River in 1821. Mexico, recently independent from Spain, controlled Texas at this time.
The American settlers eventually rebelled against Mexico and fought for their independence in the Texas Revolution (1835 to 1836). Legendary battles included San Jacinto and the Alamo. The U.S. annexed Texas in 1845, and the Mexican-American War began in 1846 as Mexico fought to keep Texas.
The U.S. captured Mexico City in 1848 and ended the war. The subsequent Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo not only kept Texas in the U.S. but gave the Americans ownership of California, half of New Mexico, most of Arizona, Nevada, Utah and parts of Wyoming and Colorado. Texas has been a part of the U.S. ever since.
The Lone Star State is the second biggest in the country in size, after Alaska, and it leads every other state in the production of cattle, sheep, oil, as well as cotton. Geography ranges from arid, flat plains in the west to the thick piney woods in the east.

What are the Benefits of a 55+ Development?
Developments designed for the 55+ crowd offer a lot of benefits. The main ones are security, plenty of recreation opportunities and a sense of community with people of similar backgrounds, but the benefits do not end there. Nearly all 55+ single family home communities, particularly newer ones, have single story homes, whether single family homes, town homes or condominiums. No more having to go up and down stairs all day long. Many have a homeowners' association that take care of the exterior maintenance, including mowing the lawn and shoveling the snow. Others have rental programs so that if you decide to go on vacation for six months, the association will find a qualified renter for you. There are even communities that will, for a monthly fee, provide meals, housekeeping and 24/7 emergency services.
