City of Magnolia Texas

Once a tiny town in the timber industry, Magnolia, Texas is a beautiful wooded community located a little over an hour's drive north of Downtown Houston. The City of Magnolia itself, situated at the crossroads of FM 1774 and FM 1488, is relatively small with a population noted by census as less than 1,500. Magnolia's extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ) is significantly larger spanning 12 miles in all directions with an area population of more than 138,000. Much of this population is centered along the 1488 Corridor (Magnolia Parkway) that extends from the town of Magnolia to the Northwest corner of The Woodlands.

Many residents are won over by Magnolia's larger lot sizes, abundant nature and wildlife resources, and communities with amenities including golf courses, recreational lakes, and horse friendly properties. This area is flexible and provides the best of both worlds for those that enjoy a country small town feeling but also desire city perks of shopping malls and entertainment. Lake Conroe is 20 minutes north of Magnolia, and the Cynthia Woods Pavilion in The Woodlands draws world class entertainment to the area.

For shopping in Magnolia, you'll find locally owned one-of-a-kind shops and dinng in Downtown Magnolia plus the more mainstream Westwood Village that has retail stores such as Target, TJ Maxx, Famous Footwear, Office Max, PetSmart, and Ross along with various restaurants and a Starbucks. A farmer's market is available every other weekend in Magnolia, as well as a craft market once a month.

During the fall season, Magnolia sees thousands of visitors drawn to the Texas Renaissance Festival in neighboring Plantersville.

Magnolia ISD has highly rated schools and is one of the fastest growing school districts in the region with an increase of 126% in student enrollment since 1994. This challenging growth rate has been met with multiple new school campus openings within the past decade including a 2nd high school, Magnolia West High School in 2006. Magnolia ISD is" Dedicated to Be The Best District in the State of Texas".

Martial Arts lovers will want to visit Magnolia Parkway's The Dojo Experience where they can learn from 7th degree Black Belt and Chun Kuk Do World Champion Tommy Crouch.

With recent major expansions to roads including FM 1488 and ongoing improvements to FM 1774, FM 2978, Highway 249, and the Grand Parkway, commute times are shortening and Magnolia has seen growth as a bedroom community to Houston, The Woodlands, and Spring. Two major Houston airports, Bush Intercontinental and Hobby, allow Magnolia residents to choose from numerous airlines for business and leisure travel. For those who like to cruise, it's only a 90 minute drive to the Port of Galveston where you'll find Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and recently added Disney cruise lines.

Magnolia has much to offer and its rapid growth is a reflection of the growing recognition of this desirable community.
