New Caney is an unincorporated area on the eastern edge of Montgomery County, located north of Humble. Traveling north along U.S. 59 (now I-69) from the county line, New Caney is just after. It has a population of approximately 22,000. Austin and Sarah Presswood came from Georgia in 1862 and founded what was then known as Presswood. In 1882 James J. Robinson wanted a post office, which required having an official town name. He wanted Caney, presumably because of the dense cane brakes along the area creeks, but there was already a Caney in Texas, so the town used New Caney instead. New Caney was known for its sawmill, as well as Robinson’s mercantile, grist mill, and steam cotton gin. New Caney experienced most of its growth in the 1980s due to its proximity to the Houston area. Today it and the nearby Porter have grown into one another, and share the New Caney Independent School District.
