The Mathis area is an important part of the county‚Äôs history, as just a few miles away in Old San Patricio, pivotal points of the Texas War for Independence from Mexico were waged. 

Many people who live in the central or eastern portions of the county have summer homes on the lake, which is great for fishing, jet-skiing, boating or simply floating. Huge catfish have been harvested from the waters of Lake Corpus Christi, and the quiet, community also attracts a healthy retired population.
