Humble, TX

Located near Houston in northeastern Harris County, Humble (pronounced "umble") is home to a population of about 15,000. The city was named for Pleasant Smith Humble, who settled in the area just prior to the Civil War. Today it is home to a culturally diverse population and a growing economy.

ECONOMY AND INDUSTRIES

The first settlers moved to Humble in the early 19th century. The area became a center for commercial activity because of the vast timber in the region. C.O. Bender built a large sawmill and Humble became a crossroads for transporting lumber.

In 1902, shallow oil production began in Humble and the city became a tent city overflowing with people. Oil discoveries mounted and by 1905, the Humble oil field was the largest oil-producing field in Texas. The Humble Oil and Refining Company (now Exxon Co. USA) was formed by local entrepreneurs.

As oil production declined, land owners turned to truck farming, dairy farming and lumbering. The town of Humble was incorporated in 1933 and it remained a quiet city until 1969, when Houston Intercontinental Airport opened.

To meet the needs of the growing population, Humble became a retail center and is now considered the commercial and economic hub of Northeast Harris County. Humble is now home to a state-of-the-art hospital, a spacious mall, and a civic center.

Humble's largest employers include Northeast Medical Center, Humble ISD, WalMart, Lawler Foods, and Target.
