The History of the City of Katy
 
Loading Image...
 
In 2008 National Day of Listening was launched to encourage families to set aside the day after Thanksgiving as a time to share and record the history of their family, friends, and community.
 
To honor #NationalDayOfListening the City of Katy wants to share some of their Katy History with you!
 
In the beginning, it was only wide-open prairie, the hunting ground of the Karankawa Indian tribes, the winter-feeding grounds of great herds of buffalo and large flocks of wild ducks, geese, cranes, and numerous other game birds, and home to longhorn cattle, deer, and wolves.
 
The main industry was rice farming, but also peanuts and cotton.
 
Katy Independent School District was formed in 1918 and a gas field was discovered in 1934. Many wells were dug, and this industry is still an important part of the city today.
 
So, take today to share favorite memories among your families or ask an elder what it was like for them in the era they grew up in.
 
And share your favorite Katy stories with the City of Katy in the Facebook comments here www.facebook.com/pho to.php?fbid=26258987 5898985&set=a.229426 772548629&   3
