Explore the unique history of the city of Lake Jackson at the 12,000-square-foot Lake Jackson Historical Museum. The facility chronicles the rich history of the city with interactive exhibits and high-tech displays.
The Museum focuses on four eras of history: The prehistoric era, plantation era, development of the area’s petrochemical industry and the founding of modern Lake Jackson. Guests can visit with the ghost of Major Abner Jackson, fly the Windecker Eagle airplane for themselves and learn how Lake Jackson’s streets earned their names.
The Lake Jackson Historical Association—the non-profit that operates the museum—also runs the Abner Jackson Plantation site and the Alden B. Dow Office Museum.
