ABOUT THE AREA

The Bay Area originally sprang up around the newly created NASA facility in the early 60’s. All of the first and subsequent astronauts called it home. The area has since matured into a diverse business community with aerospace, aviation, petrochemical, maritime, education, healthcare, businesses as well as a robust technology sector. The school district is rated one of the highest in the state. The lure of the water (Galveston Bay, Clear Lake and Taylor Lake) make this a desirable place to live for many Houstonians.

A keystone of every great community is its quality of life, which, in turn, attracts regional economic development. Bay Area Houston’s regional assets and cost of living have made it one of the top destinations in the country for businesses, for families, and for tourists. The region boasts outstanding neighborhoods, a low crime rate, low unemployment rate, above average income levels, cultural events as well as recreational facilities in boating and water sports, golf and tennis, and the full range of amateur sports facilities. In addition, Bay Area Houston is only a few minutes from Galveston’s beaches and Houston’s professional sports arenas and cultural treasures. Bay Area Houston is proud of its distinctive sense of place, its historical heritage, and wonderful lifestyle.

HISTORY
During most the 19th century the Bay Area or Clear Lake Area remained largely undeveloped. Ranches such as the famed Allen Ranch used much of the area as a cattle range. Toward the end of the century small farming and fishing communities developed. Railroads grew up near the area as well connecting the nearby commercial centers of Galveston, Harrisburg, and Houston spawning new communities such as Clear Creek (League City) and Webster.

In 1901 the oil gusher at Spindletop launched the Texas Oil Boom. Soon oil wells and refineries were built in nearby Goose Creek (modern Baytown) and Texas City. Houston rapidly became established as the main commercial center in the area for the oil industry. The Clear Lake Area became an attractive recreational destination for the new class of wealthy oil businessmen. Much of the area was developed as retreats for the wealthy including a large ranch estate owned by Houston businessman James West. The population increased rapidly including significant immigration from overseas.
In 1963 NASA's Johnson Space Center was established in the area, resulting in explosive growth of neighboring Houston in the mid-20th century, especially the 1970s and 80s, caused significant urbanization. The Clear Lake City community was created by the Friendswood Development Company, a venture of Humble Oil and Dell E. Webb Corporation, to support residential growth near the new NASA facility. Some of the communities around Clear Lake reoriented toward aerospace-related industries. Still tourism and recreation remain core industries of the area today.
