Since its founding in 1895, Katy has grown from a small sleepy rice farming and agricultural center to a booming and dynamic community. Though Katy contains one of the largest gas fields in Southeast Texas the town is now known as the population growth center on the west city limits of Houston. Forty years ago almost the only thing seen between Houston and Katy was rice fields and millions of Canadian geese in the late fall. Now the rice fields have been replaced with a variety of large and respected master planned communities that have produced exceptionally rapid growth. In the last twenty years a wide variety of energy companies have moved into the area between Katy and Houston and the Energy Corridor has been created along I10.
With the rapid growth of oil and gas this massive economic foundation has fed the rapid growth of homes and businesses in the Katy area. Retail centers are springing up all throughout Katy to accommodate the rapid residential growth. Major retail growth is focused on the Katy Fort Bend Road near the east entrance to the Katy Mills Mall and along I10 between Katy and Houston. Katy Mills Mall is the major mall currently in the area and contains a large variety of popular stores, including: AMC Theatres, Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World, Bed Bath & Beyond, Books-A-Million, Burlington Coat Factory, Last Call Neiman Marcus, Marshalls, Off 5th Saks Fifth Avenue, Old Navy, and Sun & Ski Sports. Costco also recently opened at I10 and 99.
Greater Katy includes new upscale developments and master planned communities such as Cinco Ranch, Green Trails, Pin Oak Village, Grayson Lakes, Seven Meadows, new and growing Pine Mill Ranch, Silver Ranch, Firethorne and Grand Lakes, while also encompassing developments from the 1970s and 1980s such as Memorial Parkway, Kelliwood and Nottingham Country.
The area along I10 has also become a new medical center in the greater Houston area with a number of major hospitals completed and under construction.

Railroad Park & Tourist Center
The city of Tomball is supposedly named after the M-K-T railroad which was the hub of all business in the area for many decades. The MKT Depot and Caboose honors that history. The downtown “pocket park” is home to the historic Missouri-Kansas-Texas Depot, which has been restored to serve as an Information & Tourist Center. It is a central location for tourists and visitors to obtain information, brochures and maps for the City of Katy and Katy businesses. The Katy Heritage Society Railroad Museum inside the Depot displays many original elements and explains how the Depot operated as a passenger rail service in Katy until 1957. The Heritage Society’s red caboose is also located on the beautifully landscaped site with benches and a town clock. 5615 First Street in Railroad Park. Open from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday. 281-391-8400
