History & History Related Items

The area was settled in the 1800s (no one seems to know exactly when) a group of Irish settlers came to the area. One of them was named Ingle. They established a town site that grew into a large grape producing area with the Carmen grape. They exported a lot of grapes and wine. At one point a railroad was built to handle the grape exports from the town and it was placed about 5 miles from the town so that the entire town moved to the site that is now called Ingleside. In 1991 there was a fight over annexation, and other things, and the city of Ingleside-On-The-Bay was incorporated in November of 1991.
