Before European colonization, the region around what is presently known as Corpus Christi was inhabited by the Karankawa people. In 1519, the bay of Corpus Christi was discovered by Spanish explorers, who so named it because they arrived on the day of the Feast of Corpus Christi (the body of Christ).
Corpus Christi was first settled permanently as a trading post by Colonel Henry Lawrence Kinney. His goal was to sell much-needed supplies to encamped armies of Mexican revolutionaries nearby. Nearly 15 years later, the small trading post was incorporated as the town of Corpus Christi.
