The 14,000-acre master-planned community of Kingwood is the largest such community in Harris County and the second-largest in the Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown metropolitan area. Founded in 1969, the area’s name is derived from the King Ranch which was at one time the main owner of area real estate. Although there were just a few thousand residents in Kingwood in 1976, there are more than 45,000 residents today alongside over two hundred different businesses that have some sort of presence in Kingwood.
