Goose Creek Chapter, NSDAR
Baytown, Texas

For more than 50 years our chapter has continued the traditions of providing Good Citizen and Good Citizenship awards to our four area high schools, sponsoring the American History Essay Contest, and collecting gifts for the patients in the Michael DeBakey Veteran's Affairs Administration Medical Center in Houston. The John Lewis and Goose Creek Chapters merged in 1997, creating a single chapter for Baytown.

One of the first settlers of Baytown was Nathaniel Lynch who, in 1822, set up a ferry crossing at the junction of the San Jacinto River and Buffalo Bayou that is still in operation. William Scott, one of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred, received a land grant in 1824. Scott's two leagues and one labor of land, over 9,000 acres, covered most of the area of present Baytown. Near William Scott's home on San Jacinto (Scott's) Bay, a settlement grew to include a small store and a sawmill. It was called Bay Town.
