Kingwood TX History

In the 1900s up until the 1960s, the area now known as Kingwood was largely undeveloped. It was a sprawling, wooded tract, part of which was owned by the Foster family since the early 1890s. The family operated a lumber company, taking advantage of the area’s lush greenery.

In 1967, a joint venture between King Ranch and the Friendswood Development Company sparked development in the area. Kingwood was named for its original developers. The master-planned community was established in 1970, with the first village opening a year later.

In 1994, the city of Houston looked to annex Kingwood – a process that took 2 years.

Today, Kingwood is a thriving community of more than 60,000 residents. The master-planned community has generally maintained its “close to nature” vibe and suburban atmosphere.
