Located in the state of Texas and a city in Fort Bend County, Sugarland is situated in the southwestern part of the Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land metropolitan area. It is a populous suburban municipality that is centered around the Texas State Highway. At the start of the 19th century, the present-day site of the city was a large sugar plantation that sits in Brazos River’s fertile floodplain. With the consolidation of the local plantations into the Imperial Sugar Company, the city grew steadily as a company town. When Sugar Land was incorporated into a city it grew rapidly alongside the other cities around Houston with a planned community that was a contributing factor to the population swells since the 1980s.
