Has Your Heath Home or Business Suffered Fire or Water Damage?
A Brief History Of Heath TX
Heath was first settled due to its rich black soil, and the first settlers were primarily farmers. It all started in the 1840s when the federal government ordered road construction to Austin. Where this road intersected with the east fork of the Trinity River is where the first settlers came and the story of Heath started. By 1902 Heath had its independent high school district. Soon after the city was seriously damaged by a fire which led to a lot of the young residents moving out. By 1959 it was incorporated as a town and in 1969 Lake Ray Hubbard became reality.
