The site south of highway 90 is historical Barrett Station, or "Barrett, TX" as it is known in more modern times.
Barrett Station, a predominately African American community of approximately 3,200 residents, was founded by freed slaves in 1875. It is situated along the historical Lynchburg Crossing on FM 2100, between the towns of Highlands and Crosby,Texas. Lynchburg Crossing was the route utilized by the horsemen in 1875, when traveling from Galveston with the news that slavery had been abolished. Historically, the community of Barrett was also a strategic location during the Battle of San Jacinto.
