    Things to Do and See in Katy

    About Katy

    Katy, Texas, is a vibrant and rapidly growing community just west of Houston. Founded in the 1870’s, Katy was originally known as Cane Island, named after Cane Island Creek that still runs through it. It wasn’t until 1945, however, that Katy became incorporated as a town.

    The older part of Katy is a community of quiet, tree-lined streets which reflect the laid back atmosphere of a small town. Historically, Katy was a major agricultural center, especially rice farming, and a railroad hub. At one time Katy was also home to one of the one of the largest gas fields in this part of Texas, over 30,000 acres in the 1940’s.
