Texas National Parks

There are a variety of national parks and other national sites located in the state of Texas.
Fort Davis National Historic Site is famous for the Buffalo Soldiers (all-black regiments) who were stationed at Fort Davis from 1867 to 1885. Big Thicket National Preserve is another important site, with a rare reserve of flatland palmetto hardwoods, Savannah, floodplain forests, mixed hardwood and pine forests.

The preserve is a habitat for the red cockade woodpecker, speckled snake, American swallow-tailed kite, four types of North American carnivores plants, black buffalo fish, marbled salamander and the hairy woodpecker. Guadelupe Mountains National Park boasts a 265 million year-old marine fossil reef as well as McKittrick Canyon and Guadalupe Peak, the highest point in the state.

San Antonio Missions National Historic Park is yet another fascinating site in Texas, and houses six Spanish colonial missions, irrigation canals, and architectural sites from the 18th century. The other national sites are listed below.
