Port Neches Oral History
In 2013, Nola Martin and Beverly Evans conducted 42 interviews of 75 Port Neches residents who shared 17 hours of their memories of town, school, business, and their lives with us. Most interviews centered around individuals and their families, but some were conducted with multiple people and/or revolve around selected topics. We appreciate their efforts and the contributions of all who were involved in this project to help preserve the history and spirit of Port Neches' citizens.
Maps

Some of the interviewees assisted in creating the following maps of where businesses, residences, and landmarks used to appear during the periods discussed. You may find them helpful when listening to various interviews.
