More Information About Dayton, Texas

History

Dayton, Texas is located in Liberty County. The community’s history is closely connected to the history of its neighbor, Liberty, which dates back to 1831. Liberty is the third oldest community in all of Texas. The community was originally called West Liberty, because it was located on the western banks of the Trinity River. After 1854, West Liberty began being called Day’s Town. This name came after I.C. Day, who was a wealthy landowner in the region. When the Texas and New Orleans Railroad passed through, the West Liberty station began being referred to as Days Station. Over the years this was changed to Dayton Station. In 1877, the post office officially adopted the name, changing it from West Liberty.

The primary industries in the region were lumber and cattle ranching. Across the Trinity River, Liberty was quickly becoming a trading center in the region, using the river as a method of transport. Over time, the lumber industry waned in the area and the economies of the nearby communities stalled. Luckily for the entire area, oil was discovered at the turn of the 20 th century and the oil boom took over. At its peak, Liberty was home to seventy oil firms and the economy quickly became dependent on the oil industry. This boom lasted for nearly seventy years.

Today

Recently the Houston metropolitan area has become one of the fastest growing regions in the entire country. Although Dayton is a little ways away from downtown Houston, its economy has become closely dependent on Houston’s. Today the population of the community is around 7,500 people and growing.
