Sugar Land South TX History


Samuel M. Williams and his brother Nathaniel settled on "Oakland Plantation" at the time. It was named after the numerous oaks that grow on the property. Corn, cotton, and sugarcane were grown on the Williams' plantation. The plantation was sold in 1853. Colonel E. H. Cunningham bought the 12,500-acre plantation after the Civil War and built a sugar refining plant and a town on it.

In 1908, the partners purchased the Cunningham Plantation. The purchase included a sugar mill and refinery. This resulted in the rise of the Imperial Sugar Company and the town that grew up around it. Presently the area is called Sugar Land.

In 1959, Sugar Land became a general law city.

New subdivisions sprouted up in the early 1970s. The First Colony was established soon after, in 1977. The First Colony is located north of Sugar Land South.

Sugar Land at present times is divided into North, South, East, and West.

The form of government has since shifted to council-manager. Several master-planned communities have been incorporated. Sugar Land South is still thriving today. It now serves as the location of several corporate headquarters and master-planned communities.
