Why We Love Stafford
The city of Stafford, Texas, has a long and rich history that you might call a real representation of small town America! The city began as a plantation owned by William Stafford, who ran a cane mill and cotton gin on his land. A settlement soon established itself around his land and, in the mid 1850s, local railways made Stafford a regular stop. The city soon grew into the quiet yet busy residential community it is today.
While Stafford is typically known as a “bedroom community” or residential area, there are actually four times as many people working in the city as residents! No doubt this is because the city boasts several community colleges which actively recruit local and international students, a center for the performing arts, and thriving hubs for UPS and other such businesses.
Stafford is also known for its all-American look and feel, with a traditional small-town post office, a number of city parks, a 4900 square foot public library, and local attractions and events hosted throughout the year. In Stafford, neighbors know one another and many are proud to say that their family has stayed in the city for generations.
Living and Working in Stafford
With its combination of small-town atmosphere and big city amenities, Stafford is an excellent place to raise a family or settle down and retire! Long Texas summers and mild winters allow for lots of outdoor activities, while the city is also just a short drive from nearby Houston, where you can visit the Space Center or catch a major league game! The city of Stafford also prides itself on being one of the rare cities in the country with no property taxes, so you can readily afford a home here.
While Stafford has had its share of challenges when it comes to industries moving in and out of the area, the city still boasts several thriving businesses and hubs for major corporations. Residents also know the value of an entrepreneurial spirit, as many locals have started their own businesses in the city or an adjoining neighborhood, and have found Stafford residents to be some of the most loyal customers and clients in the state!
