Firethorne TX History

Like most of the Greater Katy area, the area now known as Firethorne spent its early history as an open prairie.

During the mid-1800s, the city of Katy was known as Cane Island, named for the creek that ran through the area. The small settlement grew in earnest during the late 1800s when the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad started operations in the area.

A postal application in 1896 changed the small town's name to Katy, after the railroad. (Rail officials had nicknamed it the "KT".)

Several developments spurred further growth in the area, including the completion of Interstate 10 (Katy Freeway) and the booming oil industry.

Firethorne itself debuted in 2006, under the Jefferson Development Company. Several reputable home builders offer homes in the community, including Ashton Woods Homes, Coventry Homes, Perry Homes, Highland Homes, Plantation Homes, and Ravenna Homes.

Today, the community of Firethorne is still growing. Its appeal is hard to resist, with its lakes, parks, clubhouse, and other community amenities, great location, and small-town vibe continuing to draw new residents into the area.
