“My husband and I have used Paige Martin and the Houston Properties Team for four separate housing transactions and have had such a good experience that we continuously recommend her team to friends and family. In our most recent home purchase, Paige paired us up with Shannon Poindexter from her team, who was reliable, professional, knowledgeable and overall a great person to work with. What I appreciated most about Paige and Shannon is their long-term mindset. They cared about helping us find a home that met the right balance of location, price and amenities - not just pushing us through a transaction to meet a quota. When someone tells me they are looking to buy or sell in Houston, I will continue recommending Paige and Shannon without hesitation.” - Aimee Langlinais (Google Review)

Texas City TX History

Texas City, located in Galveston County, Texas, boasts a rich history shaped by its Gulf of Mexico proximity, industrial contributions, and resilience against challenges like natural disasters.

Initially inhabited by Native American groups such as the Akokisa and Karankawa tribes. The region gained importance when Spanish explorers arrived in the 16th century. Later, during the 19th century, it fell under Mexican rule, capitalizing on its Gulf Coast location and waterway access.

The city's destiny intertwined with Galveston's growth as a major port in the late 1800s. Seeking direct Gulf access, Texas City evolved into a deepwater port, aided by the Galveston, Houston, and Henderson Railroad.

In 1901, the Texas oil boom ignited after oil discovery near Spindletop, reshaping Texas City's trajectory. Investment surged as industries flocked, and the Texas City Terminal Railway emerged, linking port facilities with various sectors.

Tragedy struck on April 16, 1947, when the SS Grandcamp, carrying ammonium nitrate fertilizer, caught fire at the port. The ensuing explosion and fires devastated the city, causing immense loss and becoming one of America's deadliest industrial accidents.

Post-World War II, Texas City saw growth, diversifying its industry, including petrochemical and manufacturing sectors. The BP-operated Texas City Refinery stood as a key economic force.

Amid challenges like hurricanes, Texas City remained resilient, bolstered by its industrial core. Safety improvements were made after the 1947 disaster, and the city worked on downtown revitalization and tourism promotion.

Today, Texas City balances industry, residential living, and commerce. It upholds its pivotal Gulf Coast role, reflecting a tale of adaptation, growth, and perseverance.
