Port Lavaca: Calhoun County Museum

Step into 19th century Indianola, where tens of thousands of German immigrants arrived in Texas, at the Calhoun County Museum. The museum’s exhibits include an eight-foot diorama of 19th century Indianola and the Fresnel lens from the 1852 Matagorda Lighthouse. Fifteen miles down Ocean Drive – passing several state historical markers – is Indianola, no longer a grand shipping and immigration port, but a small fishing village.
