The Woodlands is a master planned community founded in 1974 by George Mitchell, an oil businessman, who planned to establish a conference center, hotels, office parks, retail malls, schools, large distribution centers, and golf courses.
Houses in The Woodlands range from moderately priced to expensive and large. Nestled within a grounded natural setting. Today, thousands of families call The Woodlands their home.
Close to I45, The Woodlands is primarily in Montgomery County, Texas, with a small portion in Harris County. It is organized in 10 villages, which are subdivided into neighborhoods. All the neighborhoods have different amenities including parks, 220 miles of hiking and biking trails, pools, golf courses, commercial centers, and a range of residential properties from single family to multifamily buildings.
The Woodlands features some of the highest-ranked schools in the greater Houston region, award-winning medical and wellness centers, and places of worship of every denomination.
The Woodlands is home of big and important corporations and has several corporate campuses, most notably Exxon, Huntsman Corporation, Woodforest National Bank, Baker Hughes, McDermott International, Safmarine, and Halliburton.
Filled with pride and dreams, the residents of The Woodlands are aware of the growth moving toward our community. We are actively involved in the planning process to guide this growth and achieve our vision of a family oriented community, a supporting infrastructure, and a stable economy.
