This view is from Matagorda Bay looking over Indian Point and Indianola toward the south. Indian Point, was referred to as "Old Town" after Indianola residents moved down the shore toward Powderhorn Lake. The purpose of the move was to take advantage of the deeper water at that location favored by Charles Morgan the shipping magnate. The downside not recognized in moving to this area was the lower elevation and hence more vulnerability to flooding (and hurricanes).

Although the old city is gone,
there is still plenty to see!
