Danish culture area
Danes are not a large group in Texas, either as first generation arrivals or as descendants. They have nevertheless played a part in most of the events of Texas history. The state is home to two colonial areas: Danevang in Wharton County and a more informal are, the former “Little Denmark,” in Lee County. Other Danes live in cities throughout the state. Today most Danish descendants, like the majority of all Texans, are urban dwellers.
