Porter is an unincorporated area on the eastern edge of Montgomery County. Traveling north from Humble along U.S. 59 (now I-69), Porter is the first area just across the county line. It’s on the Southern Pacific line at the intersection of State Highway 494 and FM Road 1314. The town’s population is around 2,000 while the surrounding area has a population of approximately 25,000. Porter was founded in the 1800s. From 1896 to 1915 it was the county seat. It had a post office form 1892 through the 1930s. The town was known for lumber, livestock, and two general stores. In the 1960s more people began moving to Porter as the Houston area expanded. In 1965 the Porter schools were incorporated into the New Caney Independent School District. Growth and development continue to erase the boundaries between these two communities.
