Chambers County was created and organized 12 February 1858 from Jefferson and Liberty counties. Courthouse and most, if not all, county records were destroyed by fire on 2 December 1875. County seat: Wallisville (1858-1908); Anahuac (1908-present). The first permanent settlement began in 1821 when the Spanish established a fortress at Anahuac and allowed American colonists to enter.
