Your Relocation Guide to The Woodlands, Texas
Presented by Beth Ferester & Company
The Woodlands, Texas
…a place I call home and where I have enjoyed selling homes for over 35 years.
Throughout my many years of coordinating moves for employees of dozens of oil and other fortune 500 companies, I have struggled to find a concise, informative packet to pass on to families moving into our area. There are many online resources, but none that compile everything that a person considering moving to The Woodlands wants to know into one site – so we decided to create our own. As a certified relocation specialist and an expert on The Woodlands and its surrounding areas, I am very proud to present you with this detailed Relocation Guide. I encourage you to click on the link above to request that we send you a personal copy of our guide in PDF format, for easy reference on your own computer.

History of The Woodlands
One Man’s Vision
Learning the history of an area can play an important part in choosing a place to call home. The Woodlands has a history that starts with one man’s vision and ends in an unrivaled success story. The Woodlands was conceived by George P. Mitchell, a successful oil industry investor and owner of Mitchell Industries. In the early 1960’s, Mitchell attended a symposium on how to develop Title VII HUD-financed communities, like Columbia, Maryland. Mitchell was keen to put his new knowledge to work and, in 1964, he purchased a large piece of land from the Grogan-Cochran Lumber Company. Of that, 2800 acres was combined with more land that was purchased over the next ten years and 300 transactions, until eventually Mitchell had assembled the original 17,455 acres that would become The Woodlands.
Villages of The Woodlands
The Woodlands is divided into Villages, with each Village containing residential enclaves, as well as village centers which all offer a variety of grocery stores, restaurants, shops and recreational facilities. The map below specifies the different villages – the map is clickable and will take you to any village-specific websites that exist for more information.
