Farm-to-Market Road 1960 (FM-1960) is 47 miles long. Its western terminus is the intersection of TX-6 and TX-290. From there it intersects TX-249, I-45, and I-69 to end at TX-321 in Dayton in Liberty County. It used to include what is now designated TX-6. It goes through 26 zip codes. The area now known as FM-1960 was first settled in 1838 by Benjamin Page, George Delesdenier, and Daniel Harmon. Their land tracts were more than 4600 acres each, and covered all the land from present I-45 west to Cutten Road, and from FM 1960 north to Louetta. Part of modern FM-1960 was the southern boundary of the Delesdenier tract. The area remained largely agricultural until the late 1940s, when Jackrabbit Road and Bammel Road were connected by the county. In the 1950s the state took over the road, designating it “Farm-to-Market Road 1960” (FM-1960). The road helped enable the development of the 1960s and 1970s, as great numbers were drawn by Houston’s low cost of living, low taxes, aerospace industry, and petrochemical companies. Today it is one of the Houston area’s major commercial corridors.
