Sugar Land TX History


Samuel M. Williams and his brother Nathaniel settled in what was then known as “Oakland Plantation”. The place was named for the wide variety of oaks on the land. The Williams’ plantation grew corn, cotton, and sugarcane. In 1853, the plantation changed hands. Post-Civil War, Colonel E. H. Cunningham purchased the 12,500-acre plantation and built a sugar refining plant and a town.

Isaac H. Kempner and William T. Eldridge acquired the Ellis Plantation, covering 5,300 acres adjacent to the Cunningham Plantation. In 1908, the partners bought the Cunningham Plantation – with its sugar mill and refinery – as well. This led to the rise of the Imperial Sugar Company, and the town built around it: Sugar Land.

Sugar Land was a company town from the 1910s to the late 1950s. The community offered ample housing for employees, schools, and a hospital. There were also plenty of retail and entertainment establishments. In 1959, Sugar Land became a general law city.

The early 1970s saw the development of new subdivisions and Sugar Creek. The master-planned community has 2 golf courses, country clubs, and swimming pools. First Colony followed soon thereafter, breaking ground in 1977.

Since then, the form of government has changed to council-manager. Several master-planned communities have then been annexed into the city. Today, the city of Sugar Land is still flourishing. And now, home to several corporate headquarters and 13 master-planned communities.

Sugar Land Town Square, the main entertainment district, is a 32-acre shopping and office complex. Many companies call the complex home, including Minute Maid and CVR Energy. The sprawling complex is part of the First Colony master-planned community, developed by Planned Community Developers.

The complex is made up of around 200,000 square feet of retail space and 750,000 square feet of office space. Condominiums, restaurants, Sugar Land City Hall, and the Sugar Land Marriott and Conference Center are also within the Town Square.

First Colony Mall, on the other hand, is a regional shopping mall and is also located in First Colony. It originally opened in 1996 and now features more than 1,000,000 square feet of retail space and over 150 retail stores and establishments.
