Below is some general information about Missouri City:
Missouri City is a city located in the U.S. state of Texas within the Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown metropolitan area. The city is mostly in Fort Bend County, with a small portion within Harris County. As of the 2010 U.S. Census, the city had a population of 67,358, up from 52,913 in 2000.
The area in which Missouri City is now located holds a significant part in the history of Texas that dates back to its early days as part of the United States. In August 1853, the Buffalo Bayou, Brazos, and Colorado Railway (BBB&C), began operating its first twenty miles (32 kilometers) of rail line that stretched from Harrisburg (now Houston) to Stafford’s Point (now Stafford). It was the first railroad to begin operating in Texas, and the first standard gauge railroad west of the Mississippi River.
The railway continued its extension westward until, in 1883, it linked with its eastward counterpart, completing the Sunset Route from Los Angeles to New Orleans. Today, the route of the BBB&C (now owned by the Union Pacific Railroad) is still an important and heavily operated railroad line.
In 1890, two real estate investors from Houston (R.M. Cash and L.E. Luckle) purchased four square miles of land directly on the route of the BBB&C, only a mile and a half from its first stop at Stafford’s Point. They advertised the property as “a land of genial sunshine and eternal summer” in St. Louis, Missouri, and its surrounding areas. Three years later, W.R. McElroy purchased 80 acres (320,000 meters) in the same vicinity, and in effort to promote the area jointly with Cash and Luckle in St. Louis, he named it “Missouri City”. Its first actual settlers were from Arlington, Texas, near Dallas and Fort Worth.
The settlement was officially registered in Texas in 1894, and began to take shape as a railroad town along present-day US 90A at Texas Parkway, then known as Main Street and Blue Ridge Road. Its growth took an unexpected turn when, on February 14, 1895, shortly after the first group of settlers had arrived, the town was hit with a blizzard. This discouraged some of the newcomers who gave up and moved elsewhere. Those unwaivered stayed and found success in farming and ranching.
