Ahead of its time

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, George Mitchell began developing plans for a new hometown called The Woodlands. It was a vision of an all-encompassing, integrated community where residents could live, work, play, learn and pray among a natural forested and preserved environment.

Almost 50 years later, The Woodlands is thriving and has been ranked the #1 Community to Live in America in 2021 and 2022. Now it s time to celebrate five decades of diversity, innovation and community pride, as we look forward to a promising future. LEARN MORE
