History on a Pinhead

Kingwood, a planned community of the Friendswood Development Company (an Exxon subsidiary) and the King Ranch, is a 14,000 acre residential community on the East Fork of the San Jacinto River.

Everything was included in the master plan for residents to shop, bank and dine locally. Greenbelts, access to Lake Houston and riding and hiking trails were included. Kingwood schools are included in Humble, Texas ISD. In 1986 the reported population was just 50, growing to nearly 20,000 by 1990. Kingwood was annexed by Houston in 2000
