The Woodlands History
You’ll notice the name George Mitchell a lot around the Woodlands. That’s because he’s the father of the community. Over 40 years ago, he developed and planned the Woodlands community. His idea was to have a place where residents could not only live, but they could also work and attend school as well.
Mitchell deeply cared about preserving the natural environment of the area, which is why the Woodlands Township adheres to tight regulations in order to maintain the forest preserves. The community opened in 1974 and has absolutely thrived ever since. In fact, it is anticipating even more growth throughout the coming years. The Woodlands’ mission is to be a place “that welcomes everyone from everywhere to grow and thrive” and one where people of all ages “live, worship, work, learn, and play.”
Nowadays, the Woodlands has:
- 28,000 acres of forested land
- A 1.4-milelong water way
- 110,000 residents
- 2,000 businesses
- 19 schools
- 143 parks
- Plus, much more
