Davy Crockett Statue David “Davy” Crockett was born in Tennessee on August 17, 1786 and died a hero on March 6, 1836 at the Battle of the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas.

A memorial to Davy Crockett stands at the south end of Ozona's town square, and Crockett County, formed in 1875, was named in honor of the Texas hero.

Weighing nearly 20 tons, the statue was placed on its base on December 31, 1938. Crockett's motto is inscribed at the base of the status, "Be sure you are right, then go ahead."

Visitors from throughout the world have been photographed at the Davy Crockett Monument.
