Immigration to Texas

Italy

About The Country

Bad economic conditions and high taxes were a few reasons why people in Italy decided to immigrate to Texas in 1880-1920. Texas offered many land opportunities and religious freedom which appealed to many people. They settled in the Brazos Valley and Gulf Coast Texas. Joe Grasso, Pompe Coppini, and Josephine Lucchese are important people that contributed to the immigration of Italians.
