About Conroe, TX
The seat of Montgomery County and a primary city in the Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land metropolitan area, Conroe is located approximately 40 miles north of Houston. The city was originally named “Conroe Switch” after a Union soldier named Isaac Conroe, who, in 1881, built a sawmill at the site. It was incorporated in 1904. Because Conroe is bordered by two forests, its early economy was based on lumber. In 1931, a man named George W. Strake discovered oil in the area, and by 1935, the Conroe Oil Field had produced about 40 million barrels of oil.
When Conroe was first incorporated, the city encompassed 5.44 square miles. Starting in the 1970s, however, it began expanding by annexing neighboring territories. By 2000, Conroe’s city limits had reached 42.35 square miles. As of 2020, that number had reached 74.4 square miles. The population of Conroe in 2021 was 98,081, a dramatic increase from 56,207 in 2010.
Conroe offers a unique blend of outdoor adventure and city life. It is bordered by Lake Conroe, W. Goodrich Jones State Forest, and Sam Houston National Forest, meaning there are plenty of opportunities for water activities, hiking, birding, and so much more. Downtown Conroe has plenty of restaurants, breweries, shopping, and live music. Some of the most popular destinations in Conroe include the Heritage Museum of Montgomery County, Moorhead’s Blueberry Farm, Fernland Historical Park, Big Rivers Water Park, and the Montgomery County Fair.
