Lynchburg, Texas

Lynchburg is an Unincorporated community in east central Harris County, Texas, United States.

The community is also known as Lynch's Ferry.


In 1822, Nathaniel Lynch built a ferry to cross the San Jacinto River just below where Buffalo Bayou flows into it. The ferry connected what would become the community of Lynchburg, on the east side of the crossing with the road to Harrisburg. At the western landing is the location of the San Jacinto Battlefield where Texan forces under Sam Houston defeated Antonio López de Santa Anna's Mexican forces in 1836.


Deer Park Independent School District operates schools in the area. Zoned schools include:[1]
