La Bahia (The Bay) receives New Name
Presidio Nuestra Senora De Loreto De La Bahia, was once located on Matagorda Bay, but has since been moved twice. By 1829, the mission was located 30 miles inland along the San Antonio river. The beautiful chapel and presidio are still popular tourist attractions, but because the town which bore the name La Bahia (the Bay) is located 30 miles from the nearest coastal bay, the village was renamed Goliad on this date in 1829.
