North Harris County includes Cypress, Bridgeland, Jersey Village, and Tomball in the northwest; Klein, Spring, Aldine, and Willowbrook in the north; and Humble in the east and Copperfield in the west. In 1824 John Richardson Harris, as part of Stephen F. Austin’s first colony, received land at the confluence of the Buffalo and Bray’s bayous(near present-day Pasadena). He founded Harrisburg, which became Harrisburg County in 1836. In 1839, Harrisburg County became Harris County and the county was trimmed to its current boundaries. In the 1840s German immigrants settled the northwest areas of Harris County. French immigrants settled Willow Creek, and after the Civil War immigrants from Britain and Scotland settled Spring and Cypress Creeks. Railroad development increased dramatically in the late 1800s, contributing to the growth of Spring and Tomball. In 1933 the Humble Oil Company, now Exxon, struck oil in Tomball. The oil wells in Northern Harris County continue to be productive. The 1960s and 1970s saw tremendous development in North Harris County, as people moved to the area to live while they worked the nation’s third largest port, in the petrochemical industry, or in the aerospace industry.
