Kingwood is a 14,000-acre (57-square-kilometer) master-planned community in northeast Houston, Texas. Harris County is home to the majority of the community, with a tiny fraction in Montgomery County. It is the largest master-planned community in Harris County and the second-largest in the 10-county Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land metropolitan area, and is known as the “Livable Forest.” During the 1990 census, it was recognised as a “census-designated place,” with a population of 37,397. It’s on the San Jacinto River’s east fork.
In 1971, the Friendswood Development Company and King Ranch formed a joint venture to form Kingwood. As a result of the collaboration, it got its name.
