Telfair TX History

The 2,018-acre parcel where Telfair now sits used to be part of the Imperial State Prison Farm. The prison plantation, later known as Central Unit, opened in 1908. Newland Communities procured the property in 2002.

The developer decided to restore the old dormitory, called Two Camp, on the property. The restored 43,000-square foot Greek Revival building now houses the Houston Museum of Natural Sciences Sugar Land.

Telfair broke ground in 2005. The development garnered several awards over the years. Three of these are from the reputed Houston Business Journal. Telfair was also named Community of the Year by the Greater Houston Builders Association.

Several reputable builders signed up to construct homes in Telfair. These include Beazer, David Weekley, Highland, Meritage, Newmark, Partners In Building, Perry, Ryland, Trendmaker, and Taylor Morrison.

Telfair has been a great addition to Fort Bend County since its opening in 2006. It was one of the top-selling new construction master-planned communities in the area.
