Serving Texas in the areas surrounding Houston
Klein is 22 miles north of Houston. It is bordered by TX-249 on the west and I-45 on the east, with TX-99 on the north and Houston on the south. It has a population of approximately 200,000. German immigrants established the Big Cypress community on Cypress Creek in the 1840s, including the five Strack brothers. The 1850s brought the Wunderlichs from Lichtenstein, Jaco Theis from Rosehill, and Adam Klein from Stuttgart after a successful stint in the goldfields of California. In 1884 Adam Klein worked to establish a post office in 1884 in William Blackshear’s general store on Spring-Cypress Road. The area it served was named Klein in Adam’s honor. In 1938 Klein Independent School District was formed. Though its 88 square miles hasn’t had a post office since 1906 (served by Houston, Spring, and Tomball post offices), in 1977 the state legislature designated the district as Klein, TX. Many of its schools in the late twentieth century were named for early settlers. At the Wunderlich Farm, the Klein, TX Historical Foundation maintains the Peter Wunderlich Homestead, the Hildebrandt House, the Kohrville School, and the Klein, TX Museum.
