History of The Woodlands
The Woodlands is a community west of Interstate Highway 45 and eleven miles south of Conroe in southern Montgomery County. In 1972 the Mitchell Energy and Development Corporation, as a response to the growth of nearby Houston, began to build, on 23,000 acres, a planned community called The Woodlands. The first homes were ready for purchase in 1974, and by 1980 the community had a population of 11,197, six schools, six parks, five churches, and a public library. About 160 companies had opened offices there by 1981. In 1990 The Woodlands numbered 29,205 inhabitants. The population reached 55,649 in 2000. You can read more here
History of Tomball
The original settlers to the area now called Tomball began arriving from Europe in the mid-1800s filled with dreams, hope for a better life, and a desire for true freedom in a new home. These pioneers were pleased to find the thick, lush forests around Spring Creek to be much like the Black Forest of Germany and prime property for a soon-to-come lumber industry. They also found the rich soil throughout the area to be perfect for farming and livestock. Just after the turn of the 20th Century this simple railroad stop and surrounding community were named Peck, but soon that all would change. In ceremonies held on December 2, 1907, at the now historic downtown depot, Peck was renamed Tomball in honor of the man responsible for routing the railroad and its operations through the small town…his name was Thomas Ball.
