Labor Day Greetings from Port Neches, Texas! Many thanks to photographer Luke Mauldin @mauldinphoto for shooting & sharing.
A bit of untold history: The Port Neches was once known as Grigsby’s Bluff - after Joseph Grigsby founded the community in 1837.
Port Neches and the land immediately east was an Indian village for over 1,500 yrs. The earliest tribe was the Karakawa- 7ft skeletons were found of the ancient people. Later inhabitants were the Nacazils, a sub-tribe of the Attakapas- in contrast, they were short and stocky people.  At one time, there were 6 large burial mounds at Grigsby’s Bluff, size about 60 feet wide, 20 feet tall, and 100 yards long containing Indian artifacts. All 6 were demolished between 1841-1901. via Instagram http://ift.tt/1ltpF22
