Crockett City History
Brothers-in-law John Sheridan and Daniel McClellan were the first settlers in the area now known as Crockett. The men came to Crockett on the suggestion of Texas land colonizer Stephen Austin. Land grants were given to pioneers by the government of Mexico. In 1837, the 110 residents of the area petitioned the government of the Republic of Texas to form a county. Houston County was formed and Crockett was named its county seat. The town of Crockett was named for Davy Crockett, the famous explorer.

Tourist Attractions, Shopping and Dining in Crockett
In 1854, the Monroe-Crook House was built in Crockett by Armistead Thompson Monroe. He was a great-nephew of President James Monroe. The younger Monroe and his family lived in the home until 1858. Two additional owners and their families lived there before the home was sold to the Crook family in 1911. They lived there until 1969 and were the last family to inhabit the home. A member of the Crook family willed the house to Houston County in 1963 and it was converted to a tourist attraction after her death in 1969.
