Pearland is one of the fastest growing cities in Texas, positioned on a growth curve that extends well into the 21st century. However, Pearland’s history goes beyond the initial founding date. Native Indian inhabitants hosted their first European visitors in 1528 including such famous names as Cabeza de Vaca, La Salle, and Stephen F. Austin leap out from this tumultuous chapter in Texas’ colorful history that traces the area’s development to present-day Pearland. The tenacity of these early settlers formed the backbone of a thriving community that continues to grow, increasing from approximately 19,000 to more than 100,000 residents in the last 2 decades. In the spirit of our earlier settlers, we invite you to come for a visit and stay for a lifetime!
