Tomball Real Estate Information
The Harris County city of Tomball and its 9,000 residents was first settled in the early 1800s when immigrants found that the open, fertile land that received adequate rainfall was perfect for farming and raising cattle. Although there were multiple rumors of oil in the area, attempts to drill the area have always turned up dry, much to the dismay of several developers. Nevertheless, Tomball has become a sustainable community on the northwestern edge of Houston. While Tomball might be in the middle of the Texan countryside, it is still very much a part of the Houston area and the rest of the world. In fact, the majority of Tomball’s residents work in Houston. Additionally, Tomball exchanges students with its sister city in Telgte, Germany as well as with different places in Armenia.
Served by State Highway 249, the Tomball Parkway, the city is quite easily connected to the rest of the region via road. Quite a few owners of area real estate are general aviators who have their own private planes and aircraft based at the David Wayne Hooks Memorial Airport. Interestingly, although the airfield is technically does not border the Tomball city limits, Tomball received permission to take over control of the facility. For residents who’d like to live someplace with a nearby medical facility, Tomball features its own regional medical center that is a full-service, 357-bed hospital that even has special expertise in cardiovascular disease, cancer care, emergency services, digital diagnostic imaging, physical rehabilitation, sports medicine, and comprehensive wound, and lymphedema care.
Most area properties are within easy reach of a school that serves local youth’s kindergarten through grade 12 educational needs. Students from Tomball are all considered to be part of the Tomball Independent School District. Tomball Elementary, Willowcreek Elementary, Lakewood Elementary, Decker Prairie Elementary, and Rosehill Elementary provide exceptional K-5 educational opportunities and experiences. Most of the campuses provide a bilingual program that accommodates students who might not master the English language. Beckendorf, Northpointe, and Tomball are the area’s three intermediate schools while there are two junior high schools, named Tomball Junior High and Willow Wood Junior High. All students end up at a single high school, Tomball High School. There is also a local campus of the Lone Star Community College system in town.
