Welcome to Corpus Christi


Spaniards named the bay after the Roman Catholic holy day of Corpus Christi in 1519, when Alonzo Álvarez de Piñeda discovered its calm waters. The town established here in the early 1800s later took the name as well. Growth was slow, however, due to yellow fever in the 19th century and a hurricane in 1919. Construction of Shoreline Blvd and the deepwater port between 1933 and 1941, combined with a boom brought on by WWII migration, caused rapid growth. Although the downtown is sleepy away from the water, the city does good business attracting large conventions and meetings at the vast American Bank Center.
