West Ranch TX History


West Ranch is a master-planned community within the Friendswood area. Friendswood used to be a land of fig orchards, Satsuma orange orchards, and rice fields until Thomas Hadley Lewis and Quakers Frank Jacob Brown noticed the 1,538 acres of prairie area.

Believing it to be the "Promised Land," they bought the property from the owner, Galveston banker J.C. League. The land was named after their colony's name.

After some time, the population rose and development in the area started around the 1970s.

Today, West Ranch is home to approximately 1,300 families living in a diverse mix of architectural-styled properties.
