In the northwest corner of Harris county lies one of the largest, and most affluent suburban communities in Houston.
Cypress, one of the fastest-growing areas in the region, was a small town with a population less than 100 in the 1980s and just over 18,000 in 2000. As Houston area development grew, so did Cypress. Today, Cypress has a population approaching 200,000 residents.
A one-room school built in the mid-1880s eventually became the Cypress-Fairbanks ISD, one of Texas’ largest and best school districts in Houston. The area is often referred to as Cy-Fair or Cypress-Fairbanks, dating back to when the Big Cypress School and Fairbanks High School combined.
The Cypress Top Historic Park offers visitors a glimpse of Cypress’ past, with historical buildings, a railroad depot and remnants of a mid-19th century railroad community.
The Cy-Fair area has many parks ideal for swimming, fishing, canoeing, hiking, disc golf and exploring nature.
