“Houston Properties (Holly Hernandez and her team, specifically) were great to work with. We listed at the tail end of the buying craze that peaked in May 2023. So, we didn't close until about 6 months after we first listed. Holly will tell you that we were challenging clients - we had specific stipulations for showings and were not always as pleasant as we should've been. But, through it all, HPT was professional and worked very hard to get our home sold. Thank you!” - Eric James Richie (Google Review)

Hitchcock TX History


Hitchcock is a town in Galveston County, Texas, located about 40 miles southeast of Houston. It was established as a railroad station between Galveston and Houston in 1873. At that time, farming, especially rice cultivation, was the main economic activity. Farmers would transport their cattle and vegetables by train to other parts of Texas.

In the early 20th century, oil and gas were discovered in Hitchcock. It brought new jobs and prosperity to the town. Hitchcock continued to grow, with a post office established in 1884 and a school in 1894. By 1914, Hitchcock had a bank, hotel, blacksmith shop, and numerous stores.

The construction of the nearby Texas City port further enhanced Hitchcock's importance as a transportation and business hub. However, the farming industry declined in the 1920s and 1930s due to insect infestations and other challenges.

During World War II, Hitchcock experienced a revival with the establishment of Camp Wallace by the U.S. military. The military bases brought a significant number of people and economic activity to the town. Although the bases closed after the war, many former soldiers decided to make Hitchcock their permanent home. The town became a city in 1960, leading to further growth and development.

Today, Hitchcock has a diverse economy that includes farming, oil and gas industries, and tourism. The town is known for its well-preserved historical buildings and landmarks. It offers residents a unique combination of small-town charm and access to urban amenities.
