Governors Place TX History

Built between the early 1980s and the late 1990s, Governors Place is among the more established neighborhoods in Greater Katy. It was built during a period when demand for housing was again increasing in the area.

The city of Katy, and its surrounding neighborhoods, was a sparsely populated area during the 1890s. In 1895, the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad started operating in the area and inspired growth. Rice farms and cattle ranches were established in the surrounding areas around the then small town of Katy, while sawmills prospered farther east.

A number of factors brought more growth into the area, including the post-WWII Houston housing boom (which  and the completion of Interstate 10 (which made for easier commutes to downtown Houston).

During the 1970s and 1980s, a number of subdivisions and master-planned communities broke ground in Greater Katy, including Cinco Ranch, Green Trails, and Kelliwood. Compared to these communities, Governors Place is smaller, and featured mid-sized lots and traditional style homes.

Today, Governors Place is still a desirable community, thanks to its central location, easy commutes, and excellent schools.
