Tomball, Texas, This “Hometown with a Heart” is located just northwest of Houston and has a population of just under 10,000 citizens. Tomball is a town strong with community and kinship and remains a small town despite its continuing growth and development. Residents of this Texas Township comment that the larger Tomball grows, the more it seems like a small town.

Transportation in the greater Tomball area is dominated by George Bush Intercontinental Airport (which lies about 20 miles from Tomball), two freeways two tollways and an extensive mass transit system. As a result needs stemming from business, commuting and personal travel are well served.

Tomball TX History

The original settlers to the area now called Tomball began arriving from Europe in the mid-1800s filled dreams, hope for a better life, and a desire for true freedom in a new home.

These pioneers were pleased to find the thick, lush forests around Spring Creek to be much like the Black Forest of Germany and prime property for a soon-to-be thriving lumber industry.  They also found the rich soil throughout the area to be perfect for farming and livestock.

Just after the turn of the 20th Century this simple railroad stop and surrounding community was named Peck, Texas, but soon that all changed. In ceremonies held on December 2, 1907 at the now historic downtown depot, Peck was renamed Tomball in honor of the man responsible for routing the railroad and its operations through the small town . . . his name was Thomas Ball.

Thomas Ball was a former congressman, practice law in Houston, was three-time mayor of Huntsville, Texas and is known as the “Father of the Port of Houston”. By bringing rail service to the community, Ball virtually ensured the growth that would follow for years to come.

As the city continued to grow and prosper over the next 25-years, residents had little idea of the economic boon that was about to gush into their lives. It was on May 27th, 1933 when the Humble Oil Company struck oil southwest of town earning Tomball the nickname, “Oiltown USA”.   Humble Oil Company, now known as Exxon, and more than 20 other energy companies worked the fields around the City for many years producing more than 100 million barrels of oil and 316 billion cubic feet of natural gas.

In the decades to follow Tomball has continued to grow into a diverse and vibrant community near to the big city while retaining its small town history and hometown sensibilities.
