Green Lake – Birthplace
GREEN LAKE, TEXAS. Green Lake, at the junction of State Highway 35 and Farm Road 404, twelve miles southwest of Port Lavaca in western Calhoun County, was settled as early as 1850 by Kentucky cotton planters. A contemporary observed: “Green Lake was once the locality of a neighborhood characterized by the wealth and social standing of the residents.”
At the beginning of the Civil War, federal troops under Gen. David E. Twiggs mustered at nearby Green Lake (after which the community was named) to await ships to return to the north. After the war local planters found themselves without horses, mules, farming equipment, money, or slaves.
The population remains about 62 today in 2019. My Mom still lives on the same farm at the time of the writing.
