Founded in 1895 by Arthur Stilwell, who named it after himself, Port Arthur grew where previous attempts to settle the area failed. Port Arthur was incorporated as a city in 1898 and quickly became a well-known seaport thanks to its location on the Gulf Coast. The oil industry followed after oil was discovered nearby around Beaumont, and the town became a major center for refineries.
Port Arthur is tied economically to the oil industry and is home to the largest oil refinery in the United States, the Motiva Refinery. The town is home to the Museum of the Gulf Coast which houses artifacts from the town’s history as well as from the surrounding communities. Of course, being a coastal community, you can enjoy a trip to McFaddin Beach, a 20-mile twenty-mile stretch of hard-packed sand. Port Arthur is packed with birding and fishing activities thanks to the enormous McFaddin National Wildlife Refuge.
