As you are searching for homes in Conroe, you may also want a little background and history of the area. The history of the city dates all the way back to 1881, when Union Cavalry officer Isaac Conroe founded a sawmill just two miles east of the city. It was officially incorporated in 1904. The city is approximately 53 square miles, located just 40 miles north of Houston, Texas and today, serves as the county seat for Montgomery County.
Ten miles west of downtown is Lake Conroe. At 21,000 acres, there is room on the lake to enjoy fishing, watersports, sailing, and more. Residents and visitors of the area can spend the day cruising the lake, or float up to one of the local favorite bar and grills like Sam’s Boat or Papa’s on the Lake.
A day enjoying the lake is not the only form of entertainment around. The historic Crighton Theatre, built in 1934, offers year round productions for those who enjoy the arts. The famous city is known for the Montgomery Country Fair and the Cajun Catfish Festival.
Because of the growing population that has more than doubled since 2000, Conroe ISD is the 17th largest school district in the state. With over 58,000 students at 60 different campuses, the school district boasts the highest graduation rate in the state at 94.7%. The students’ mean score on the SAT and ACT are both higher than the respective state and national scores.
With such a large student population, it is no surprise that Conroe ISD is the largest employer in Montgomery County. However, work opportunities nearby span across multiple industries. From teaching in the Conroe ISD to medical professions at Conroe Regional Medical Center, or a position with Exxon Mobile at their campus just a few miles south of town, the economy is diverse.
It is just a short 45 minute drive South to arrive in Houston. The expansion of I-45’s high occupancy vehicle lane from FM 1960 in Spring to Texas 336 South will add a carpool lane in each direction. This will ease congestion on one of the Greater Houston Metropolitan area’s busiest traffic corridors.
With all that this area has to offer, it is no wonder that the city has one of the fastest growing populations in the nation, and is a highly desired area for many Texas residents.
