Specialty Museums
Navasota is a city in Grimes County, Texas, United States. The population was 7,049 at the 2010 census, rising to an estimated 7,476 in 2015. In 2005, the Texas Legislature named the city "The Blues Capital of Texas", in honor of the late Mance Lipscomb, a Navasota native and blues musician.GeographyNavasota is located in southwestern Grimes County, east of the Navasota River, a tributary of the Brazos River. Texas State Highway 6 passes through the eastern side of the city as a four-lane bypass, leading northwest to College Station and south to Hempstead. Texas State Highway 105 passes through the center of Navasota, leading southwest to Brenham and east to Conroe. Houston is southeast of Navasota.According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 19.1km2, of which 0.1km2, or 0.47%, are water.HistoryNavasota was founded in 1831 as a stagecoach stop named "Nolansville". Its name was changed in 1858 to Navasota, a name perhaps derived from the Native American word nabatoto ("muddy water").After September 1859, when the Houston and Texas Central Railway built into the town, Navasota became important as a shipping and marketing center for the surrounding area. When nearby Washington-on-the-Brazos protested the coming of the rails, the old historic town forfeited its geographic advantage, and it began to decline as many of its businesses and residences began a sure migration to the new railhead 7mi to the northeast across the Brazos River at Navasota.
