Corpus Christi was founded in 1839 by Colonel Henry Lawrence Kinney as Kinney's Trading Post, or Kinney's Ranch, a small trading post to sell supplies to a Mexican revolutionary army camped about 25 miles (40km) to the west. In July 1845, U.S. troops under General Zachary Taylor set up camp there in preparation for war with Mexico, where they remained until March 1846. About a year later, the city was named Corpus Christi and was incorporated on September 9, 1852. the Port of Corpus Christi was opened in 1926 and the Corpus Christi Naval Air Station was commissioned in 1941. The historic USS Lexington was part of the set for the 2000 film "Pearl Harbor." Nearby is Corpus Christi's Museum district with the Museum of Asian Cultures, Corpus Christ Museum of Science and History, the South Texas Institute for the Arts, and the Harbor Playhouse Theatre, one of the oldest continually operating community theatres in the State. Corpus Christi was also home to Selena, a local Tejano star who crossed over into pop shortly before her untimely death. Movies have been made about her since her death.
