Katy, Texas, is located west of Houston along I-10. A smaller community sitting in three different counties, Katy is home to about 15,000 residents. The city of Katy is rich with history dating back to the 1800s, when the area was originally named Cane Island after a creek flourishing with cane plants that is still in present-day Katy. The town was not officially named Katy until 1896.
Today, Katy is a vibrant community known for its continued dedication to growth and sustainability. The greater Katy area is much larger than the city itself, and houses nearly 300,000 residents. With several upscale neighborhoods in Katy, the community is thriving and continues to be a great place live in close proximity to Houston, but with the comforts of small-town living.
