Katy TX History


During the mid-1800s, the area now known as Katy was called Cane Island. James J. Crawford received a land grant that included Cane Island during this period.

After three decades, the area became sparsely populated and only had four residents.

Growth in the area started in earnest near the turn of the century, when the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad laid rails through Cane Island. In 1895, the MKT began going through the area, and James Oliver Thomas laid out plans for the town.

The name Katy came from the railroad itself: railroad officials fondly called the railroad “the Katy” (KT) then the name stuck onto the planned town.

In the 1900s, families moved into the town, establishing farms and ranches around the area. Katy’s growth is generally to the MKT (now part of Union Pacific) and later the completion of Interstate 10.

By 1945, Katy became a municipality with a city council and a mayor. Today, the city of Katy became the anchor point of the Greater Katy area.
