Ingleside is situated on Corpus Christi Bay, located on the southeast tip of San Patricio county. The early communities of Ingleside have been known as Old Ingleside, Inwood, Ingleside Cove, Ingleside-on-the-Bay, Palomas, Cove City, and Cove. The earliest community here started in 1854 when George C. Hatch purchased land on both sides of the bayou. Later, he acquired over 3,800 acres of land, which he sold to various folks.
These folks built homes on the bayou, and local lore and legend credits John Vineyard with naming Ingleside, which means “fireside.” In 1855, George and Marcellus Turner settled in Ingleside, obtaining an 1857 grant for Ingleside’s first post office. George Hatch and Youngs L. Coeman opened a local general store. Henry Nold II operated the Ingleside Male and Female Academy, and operated the boarding school until it was destroyed by Union soldiers in 1862.
During Ingleside’s development, its primary industries were farming and ranching. Early farming efforts focused on grapevines, to great success; however, blight killed the grape business in Ingleside in the 1930s. Trade goods came to Ingleside by way of steamships traversing waters between Corpus Christi and Ingleside. And in 1909 developers Burton and Danforth laid out the current Ingleside townsite. In 1913 the Ingleside Common School District was formed, housing just 80 students.
In 1927, Humble Oil announced plans for a refinery in Ingleside, and construction began to boom. During this time, Ingleside experienced a period of growth and prosperity, seeing a sharp rise in population and the opening of two newspapers. This prosperity didn’t last long, though; between 1944-1945 a labor dispute resulted in the closure of the Humble Oil refinery, and the ultimate salvage sale of the property.
Brauer Corporation opened an aluminum fabrication plant in 1948, and Reynolds Metal followed suit in 1950, opening a plant only five miles away. DuPont followed and a local plant was built in 1973. Ingleside developed primarily as a residential area and was incorporated in 1951. In 1954, the Corps of Engineers cut a channel, La Quinta Channel, through Ingleside Point, thus demarking an area known as Ingleside-on-the-Bay, where the United States Navy intended to open its Homeport in 1995. The population of Ingleside grew steadily after 1972 and in 2000 Ingleside had a population of 9,388, including 3,200 active duty naval personnel.

White vein Kratom usually has euphoric and mood boosting properties. It is said to provide an energy boost, too. In fact, white vein Kratom is comparable to a cup of coffee in the morning, according to some of our customers. This vein color helps with focusing throughout the day, and staying motivated and on task. Further, we have also heard reports of customers using this Kratom color as a pre-workout supplement. This Kratom will help keep you both physically and mentally alert all day long.
Red vein Kratom is probably the most popular color. This strain is considered to have the most potent pain relieving properties of all the Kratom colors. Additionally, this color seems to be a favorite among customers kicking an opioid habit. Most red vein Kratom has high pain relief qualities, and, in higher doses, can have a sedative effect. For this reason, customers also use red vein Kratom to help them wind down for a peaceful night’s sleep.
Green vein Kratom is somewhere right in the middle of white and red. Its a great blend of pain relief, while giving you a sense of wellbeing and focus for your day. Customers report that green vein Kratom is wonderful for social activities. This is because it helps to keep you bright and cheery, while also relaxed and comfortable. And of course, doesn’t leave you feeling tired or groggy the next day.
Yellow Kratom produces effects similar to green Kratom. The yellow color is not actually a result of the Kratom vein color itself, but results from a unique process used to dry this type of Kratom. Yellow Kratom mimics green vein’s pain relief and mood boosting properties, while also having a milder form of the energy boosting you might get from a white vein Kratom.
Once you’ve decided on the type of Kratom right for you, it’s time to decide on how to get it to your front door. We’ve got a few options for shipping.
