Victoria, center of the South Texas Crossroads in the heart of the Golden Gulf Coast, is a still-expanding historic city on the banks of the Guadalupe River. More than 150 years old, it is one of the first three towns chartered by the new republic when Texas won its independence from Mexico in 1836. Famous battles of the Texas revolution were fought at nearby sites.
Pioneer charm and high-tech industry mingle in the city of 62,000 inhabitants, near the Gulf of Mexico on a popular coastal route between Houston and Mexico. It is a short distance by car to Houston, San Antonio, Austin, and Corpus Christi. Victoria is the home of many petrochemical industries such as DuPont, Alcoa, Dow, Formosa, INVISTA, BP Chemicals, and Equistar Chemicals. Victoria is surrounded by vast expanses of ranch lands held by descendants of early Texas settlers and offers economic as well as cultural diversity.
