About Clute, TX
This charming small Texas town is close to the two larger urban centers of Galveston and Houston. Clute's motto, \where science, history, and fun come together,\ is particularly apt when you consider the area's rich history and resources. For example, the nearby Mammoth Lake has been used as an inland scuba diving spot. And speaking of Mammoths, the City of Clute has embraced these wooly creatures as their ambassadors after a fossilized mammoth was discovered beneath the Earth in Clute in 2003.
