This idyllic Houston suburb is everything a well-planned residential community should be. Its estimated 84,511 residents enjoy the best of both worlds: a green oasis awash in peace and tranquility as well as the culture and excitement of America’s third largest city just a half-hour’s drive away. Recent census data shows a healthy mix of residents living in Sugar Land including 24.6 percent under the age of 18 and 10.4 percent who are 65 or older. Fully 92.6 percent have at least a high school education, and 53.8 percent of those have completed a bachelor’s degree or higher. This translates into a strong median household income and reflects Sugar Land’s diverse and thriving economy.
Originally owned by the Mexican government, the area around present-day Sugar Land was referred to as Oakland Plantation by its initial settler Samuel M. Williams, an educated Rhode Island native whose close association with Stephen F. Austin helped him win the land grant. Cultivating sugar cane proved successful, and in 1838 Williams sold land to a brother, Nathaniel Williams, for a sugar plantation that remained in the family until 1853. At that time, the area was renamed Sugar Land and continued as a center for sugar production with successive owners until it became Imperial Sugar in 1907. The company town Sugar Land, fueled by Imperial’s success, continued its growth well into the 20th century until, in 1959, it took steps to incorporate as a city. Since then, Sugar Land has become known throughout the country for its beautiful, affordable planned communities that offer golf, fishing, excellent schools and other attractions close to home.
Proximity to Houston is one of Sugar Land’s benefits, but its local attractions are equally fun to indulge in. The Aerodrome Ice Skating Palace offers public skating complete with lights and music for a festive atmosphere. The Flying Saucer is another favorite with great food, plenty of craft beers and an atmosphere that’s comfortable and sophisticated. For hometown minor league baseball excitement, be sure to catch a Sugar Land Skeeters game at family-friendly Constellation Field
It’s hard to enjoy the pleasures of living and working in Sugar Land without well-designed and efficiently functioning air conditioning.
