Hankamer Texas History: 
In 1900, the Hankamer-Stowell Canal Company established irrigated rice fields in Chambers County, changing the way area farmers grew rice. Hankamer was named after early settler I.A. Hankamer. The Hankamer post office was established in 1904. The 1929 discovery of the Hankamer oil field in adjacent Liberty County caused renewed growth of Hankamer. By the mid-1930s Hankamer had 200 residents and four businesses. The town is all about the outdoors. Hankamer is located northeast of Lake Anahuac at the junction of SH 61 and FM 1663, 47 miles east of Houston, 19.4 miles east of Mont Belvieu, 8 miles northeast of Wallisville, 26.7 miles northeast of Baytown, 8.8 miles northeast of Anahuac and Lake Anahuac, 29 miles northeast of Smith Point, 36.6 miles northwest of High Island, 18 miles west of Winnie, and 41 miles southwest of Beaumont, Texas.
