Just minutes from downtown Houston, Missouri City offers a unique balance of urban amenities and small-town atmosphere for both businesses and families. Our citizens can take advantage of all that Houston has to offer – the Galleria, Texas Medical Center, two major airports etc – while maintaining a cozy hometown feel. The “Show Me City” is a unique place in many ways, starting with its name. In 1890, two real estate investors from Houston bought some land near current-day Missouri City. They promoted it as "a land of genial sunshine and eternal summer" to folks in St. Louis, Missouri. Three years later another investor, W.R. McElroy, purchased 80 acres nearby; in an effort to promote the areas jointly back in St. Louis he named it "Missouri City". The city is also unique in the sense that it is shared by two counties: the majority of Missouri City lies in Fort Bend County, but a small portion lies within Harris County.
Today, Missouri City is marked by a growing population, dynamic economy and engaged citizenry – all proof positive that this is a highly desirous location. The city has recently been declared one of America’s best places to live as well as one of the country’s safest communities – including the 5th safest in Texas – by Money Magazine. The city has been awarded the Leadership Circle Award from the Texas State Comptroller’s Office for its transparency in financial, audit and budget reporting to residents. Missouri City is constantly seeking to attract businesses to the area with significant incentives, and programs designed to help existing industries prosper. Missouri City is home to the highly acclaimed Fort Bend Independent School District, a district consistently recognized for its excellence among both students and teachers. The city also has an exemplary City Parks and Recreation Department that maintains and operates 19 parks on over 354 acres.
