TRINITY BAY. Trinity Bay is the northern portion of Galveston Bay and is centered at 29°40' north latitude, 94°47' west longitude in Chambers and Harris counties. The bay, approximately twenty miles long, heads at the mouth of the Trinity River, which is the site of early Anahuac (1821) and the scene of much prerevolutionary activity. Trinity Bay stretches from Anahuac to the Houston Ship Channel.
