Air Tech Insight: Sugar Land (part 1)

Fort Bend County was formed in 1837 when Jane Long sold a portion of her estate to Robert Handy in order to develop the town of Richmond. The city became one of the first granted a charter by the Republic of Texas.

She opened a hotel and boarding house there and made her home on the Long Plantation, just outside the city, where she resided until her death in 1880.

In1838, the Oakland property was acquired by Nathaniel Williams. He purchased the land from one of his brothers for just over $13,000; and, with a third brother, ran the plantation by growing cotton, corn and (in 1840) sugarcane.

The sugarcane flourished and sugar from the region became considered superior because it contained more juice than the sugarcane in Louisiana. Brazos and the surrounding four county area became known as the “Sugar Bowl of Texas.”

The Williams brothers installed a mule-powered sugar mill in 1843 along Oyster Creek which, many years later, became the location of Imperial Sugar.  Now, Imperial Sugar is the oldest business in Texas still manufacturing the same products on the same site.

In 1845, Texas was annexed by the United States of America on December 29 and became the 28th state.

Sugar Land was proud to be part of Texas history then and is still proud to be part of Texas history now.

Air Tech of Houston is proud d to serve Sugar Land, Texas for any and all air conditioning as well heating needs.
