La Porte, Texas was originally founded back in 1892 by an investment group as part of a speculative real estate venture. Located in the Bay Area of the Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown metro area, La Porte was known as a popular tourist destination in the Houston area in the later part of the 19th century, and was quickly filled up with hotels, dance pavilions, boating piers and a variety of other period attractions built around the waterfront.

In the late 1920s, the beach front area around La Porte began to suffer, thanks in part to erosion caused by the wakes of shipping traffic as well as land subsidence from the extraction of area groundwater. Smaller beaches meant fewer tourists, as did the arrival of World War II, which slowed tourism even more. The final nail in the coffin for tourism in La Porte was a devastating hurricane that struck in 1943. The storm destroyed most of the city’s waterfront tourist attractions and as a result, La Porte’s once thriving tourist industry declined to almost nothing. By the late 20th century, erosion had eliminated the beach completely.
