Facts about Huffman
Huffman is an unincorporated community of northeastern Harris County, Texas within the Houston,Baytown metropolitan area.
The area is centered on Farm to Market Roads 2100 and 1960, 25 miles (40 km) northeast of Downtown Houston in the piney woods of southeastern Texas. David Huffman, a native of Louisiana, came to Texas to fight against Mexico during the Texas Revolution. For services rendered, Huffman received $24 and 324 acres (1.31 km2) of land in 1838. Along with his dad Abe, Huffman and a group from Louisiana settled in the area north of FM 1960 and east of FM 2100 in 1840. In the early years, the economy was driven by farming with primary crops being cotton, rice and corn as well as ranching and logging. A post office was established at the community in 1888, and two blacksmith shops were operating here by 1892. The Beaumont, Sour Lake and Western Railway came through the community in the early 1900s. By 1914 the town reported two general stores and a population of 250. The construction and operation of the Sinclair Oil pump station in 1921 added to the economy. The 1936 county highway map showed a church and cemetery at the townsite. In 1953, Lake Houston was opened as a recreational lake and still serves the area today with boating, water skiing and jetting, fishing and sailing.
Huffman covers about 39 square miles (100 km2) and houses approximately 12,000 citizens. Huffman is a community consisting largely of subdivisions, scattered farms, apartments, and small businesses.
