Sugar Land is nestled in the southwestern portion of the Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land Metro Area in Fort Bend County. It is about 19 miles from downtown Houston to the southwest. Centered around the junction of U.S. Route 59 and Texas State Highway 6, Sugar Land derived its name from a vast sugar plantation once situated in the fertile Brazos River floodplains. In 1908, many of the local sugar plantations were consolidated into one big company called the Imperial Sugar Company. As the company grew so did Sugar Land. Even after the sugar plantation shut down, Sugar Land remained a sweet spot for people to settle. Large-scale master-planned housing communities began sprouting up in and around Sugar Land, which caused the population to swell, and hasn’t stopped growing since the 1980s.
