Welcome to Tomball

A little slice of historic Texas to call your own

Finding the right balance between small-town charm and buzz-worthy suburban amenities can take time and effort. Fortunately, Tomball hits the mark.  Nicknamed Oiltown USA because of the oil found in 1933 that would later become Exxon. The town grew steadily after the discovery of oil and continues to develop today, with ExxonMobil’s headquarters located 20 minutes away.
New developments on the outskirts of town complement Tomball's historic downtown area. The blend of new and old means you'll find your favorite big box stores and unique boutique shops and dining. Neighborhoods here are quiet with a nice mix of both new build and historic homes. The community offers excellent Tomball ISD schools and an events calendar with enough going on to keep the whole family entertained.

Tomball extends all the way into the southernmost portion of The Woodlands Creekside Village located in Harris County, just south of Spring Creek. This area features walkable neighborhoods with newer construction homes and easy access to businesses within a short drive, bike ride, or walk.
