Goliad, Texas and Goliad State Park

Goliad is a picture-perfect South Texas town that looks much as it did a century ago. Although it is the third oldest municipality in Texas, Goliad is still undiscovered by the masses of tourists.

Early Spanish explorers list an Aranama Indian village at this site, then called Santa Dorotea. In 1749 Spain established a mission, and as was custom, a nearby presidio (fort) for protection. "Remember Goliad!" became a battle cry of the Texas Revolution after Col. James Fannin along with 342 of his men were massacred here.
