About San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site

The San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site is the site of the final battle of the Texas Revolution. Sam Houston's army defeated Santa Anna's Mexican forces on April 21, 1836, an outcome that delivered independence to the state. The 1,200 acre park contains the San Jacinto Monument (the world's tallest monument tower) and Battleship Texas (a floating memorial museum).

Battleship Texas -- former flagship of the Texas navy -- became a museum in 1948. It is anchored in the waters of the Buffalo Bayou and the Houston Ship Channel.

The San Jacinto Monument is a National Historic Landmark and a Historic Civil Engineering Landmark. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The monument stands at 570 feet tall and is complimented by a reflection pool. The base of the monument contains a museum; an elevator is available to take visitors to an observation deck. A multimedia show entitled "Texas Forever!! The Battle of San Jacinto" is also available.

Various fees are associated with the site's features and can be found on the website. Parking is free with admission on site.
