"Where Science, History, and Fun Come Together"

Clute residents know the value of quiet living near the largest city in Texas. Around 50 miles south of Houston and 50 miles west of Galveston, this community offers a lot of small-town safety and geographical convenience.

In 2003, the remains of two mammoths were discovered in Clute. This was the first major find of its kind in the Texas Gulf Coast region and has put Clute on the archaeological map. "Joe Mammoth" and "Asiel", as the mammoths have been named, join "Willie Manchew", as the mascot of the city's ambassadors.

The City of Clute and the surrounding area offers deep-sea fishing, bay fishing, and crabbing. Dive at Mammoth Lake Dive Park. Visit the Center for the Arts & Sciences which houses the larges seashell collection in the south.
