About Conroe

Conroe, Texas

 

 

 

 

City
Location in Montgomery County in the state of Texas

 

 

 

 

 

Conroe is the seat of Montgomery County and falls withinHouston–The Woodlands–Sugar Land metropolitan area. It is located about 40 miles (64 km) north of Houston.

As of July 2012, the city population was 61,533, up from 36,811 in 2000.

 

 

 

 

 

History

The city is named after northern born, Union Cavalry officer and Houston lumberman Isaac Conroe.Conroe founded a sawmill there in 1881. The city originally gained in wealth due to the lumber and oil industries. Originally named "Conroe's Switch", the area saw an influx of residents in the late 19th century due to the lumber demands on the piney wood forest of the area.

During the 1930s, due to oil profits, the city boasted more millionaires per capita than any other US city, though only for a brief period of time. Elvis Presley performed at the High School football field on August 24, 1955. Also Los Tigres del Norte performed at the Crighton Theatre in 2009.

After the construction of Interstate 45, many Houstonians began to settle communities around Conroe.

Within the first decade of the 21st century the city attracted a great deal of new residents from the Houston area. Renée C. Lee said that Conroe around 2002 was "a sleepy, backwater town 40 miles north of Houston" and that at the time, Conroe city officials needed to use financial incentives to attract home developers to Conroe. Lee said that for a three-year period ending in 2007, Conroe became a hotbed of construction of new houses.

In 2012 the U.S. Census Bureau designated the area around Conroe andThe Woodlands as a "large urbanized transit area," an area defined as having over 200,000 residents, making it eligible to receive federal transportation funds.

 

 

 

 

Economy

In the early 1980s, Exxon considered consolidating its employees to a site in Conroe. The company ended the plans afterthe local oil-based economy collapsed.

The city is served by a number of parks, most notably Candy Cane Park. The Heritage Museum of Montgomery County is located in Candy Cane Park.
