Saratoga, Texas

Saratoga was settled a decade before the Civil War in Hardin County northwest of Beaumont. The location is named after Saratoga, N.Y., because of the medicinal springs. The health resort fell into disuse after discovery of oil in 1901. It is currently a small retail center in the heart of the Big Thicket.
