Champion Building Fish Mural Restoration


Historic Champion Building’s Fish Mural Undergoes Restoration

Port Isabel, Texas

In 1906, just seven years after the 1899 construction of the Champion building, local fisherman and artist, Jose Morales was commissioned to paint a fish mural on the front of the 2-story structure. It was meant to promote sport fishing in the area. Over 200 images represent the species that can be found in the Laguna Madre Bay and the Gulf of Mexico off the beaches of South Padre Island.

Over the decades, the mural has been restored several times. Weather and other factors create conditions that require periodic restoration, so it was early in the spring of 2017 that plans were made to undergo this latest restoration. The Museums of Port Isabel has commissioned local artist, Angel Hernandez, to restore the 212 images that grace the building.

Restoration of the Champion Building Fish Mural


Other improvements also being made on the grounds of the Champion building includes the reconstruction of the walkway that leads to the Port Isabel Historical Museum entrance. Designed using the architectural details on the front of the Champion building, the walkway will feature the same millwork, proportions and colors that make up the gallery on the south side of the structure.


The Museums of Port Isabel will be fundraising for the historical fish mural. Those interested in participating can select the fish they would like to sponsor and contact Museum staff for payment processing. Selections are first come, first served. The project is estimated to be completed in the next couple of months.

The Fish Mural was celebrated on October 27th at 7 p.m. Festivities will include recognition of the donors and a presentation of the history of the fish mural. Details to follow. For more information on the fish sponsorship, please visit:, email or call 956/943-7602.

The Museums of Port Isabel is a complex consisting of three diverse facilities, the Port Isabel Historic Museum, the Treasures of the Gulf Museum, and the Point Isabel Lighthouse. All three are within walking distance of each other and are open year around to the public.


Constructed in 1852, the Point Isabel Lighthouse was built to protect and guide ships through Brazos Santiago Pass and the barrier islands. In 1952, the Lighthouse was opened as a State Park and remains the only lighthouse on the Texas Gulf coast open to the public. The Lighthouse has just undergone a Texas Parks & WildlifeDepartment restoration and reopened to the public on January 2, 2018. The Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottage which is on the grounds of the Lighthouse, is open to the public and houses the Chamber of Commerce and the Port Isabel Visitors Center. There is no admission charge to the Keepers Cottage. Lighthouse tickets can be purchased at the Keepers Cottage or at the Lighthouse. A combination ticket is available. Last ticket sold at 4:30 p.m. or 1/2 hour before closing.


Port Isabel Historical Museum is a state-of-the-art facility located in the Champion Building. Built in 1899 as a dry goods store and residence, it now houses two exhibit levels, a theater, gift shop and one of the largest collections of Mexican artifacts from the U.S.-Mexican War. The facade features the famous ‘fish mural’ painted in 1906 by a local fisherman. The fish mural was restored in the fall of 2017. Last ticket sold at 3:30 p.m. 317 E. Railroad Ave., Port Isabel. 956/943-7602.


Treasures of the Gulf Museum spotlights three 1554 Spanish shipwrecks. Meeting their fate just 30 miles north of Port Isabel, they are brought to life with murals, artifacts and hands-on activities. Also featured is a Children’s Discovery Lab, Ship theatre and Nautical Gift Shop. Last ticket sold at 3:30 p.m. 317 E. Railroad Ave., Port Isabel. 956/943-7602.

Telling Our Stories ~ SHRIMPING INDUSTRY by Mrs. Carlett Boudreaux 9/27 7p

The Museums of Port Isabel and the Laguna Madre Museum Foundation are proud to present its “Telling Our Stories” Series of 2018 on Thursday, September 27th, at the Treasures of the Gulf Museum, 308 East Railroad Avenue at 7pm. This month’s topic will be on “Shrimping Industry” by Mrs. Carlette Boudreaux.

In 1949 at the age of 3, my father, mother and I moved to Brownsville, Texas from Morgan City, Louisiana.  The Shrimping Industry brought us here.  My father asked my mother if we could come for one season (which would have been about six months) and the season lasted 66 years.  With some others, my fathers did a lot to improve the South Texas Shrimping Industry.  As of today, he is still located in the Port Isabel area where he docked his first boat when we arrived.

Please join us for an entertaining evening with Mrs. Boudreaux on giving a presentation of the history of the “Shrimping Industry” with emphasis on the Port Isabel and local area. All locals and visitors are welcomed to attend this free presentation. Complimentary drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be provided.

‘Telling Our Stories” is an educational program aimed to preserving the heritage of the City of Port Isabel and the Laguna Madre area. Our goals are to preserve and educate our local and natural history through presentations and exhibits. The program is co-sponsored by the Museums of Port Isabel and the Laguna Museum Foundation. “Telling Our Stories” is presented on the fourth (4Th) Thursday of each month from January through September at the Treasures of the Gulf Museum. Admission is FREE.
