Clear Lake Houston can trace its roots back to a sprawling 30,000-acre ranch previously owned by James Marion West, a prominent businessman. West sold his property to Humble Oil – now known as ExxonMobil – after oil was discovered on the property.
During the early 1960s, NASA’s Manned Spacecraft Center set up shop next door, spurring the area’s growth. In 1963, Humble Oil and the Del E. Webb Corporation formed Friendswood Development to develop 15,000 acres of the property.
