Fun facts about Cypress, TX

A few interesting facts about Cypress, TX

Did you know that Tin Hall is one of the oldest continually operating dance halls in Texas, it's been in operation since 1889.
How many of your great great grandparents hung out there?

General Sam Houston and his Texas Army camped in the area on March 22, 1836 on the way to Harrisburg, which is now in East Houston, just days before the Battle of San Jacinto. Actually, the neighborhood, Ravensway got it's name from General Sam Houston as that is the area where they camped and he was known as The Raven.
Now you want to go camp out in Ravensway, don't you?

Cypress-Fairbanks comes from when the Cypress and Fairbanks volunteer fire departments joined together to form the Cypress-Fairbanks Volunteer Fire Department. That was later shortened to Cy-Fair.
Good to know!

Cypress was considered mostly rural until the 1980's when developers began several master-planned communities.
We've come a long way baby!

Did you know that the Northwest Forest Conference Center has a life size replica of The Alamo?
Field trip anyone?
