More Information About Huffman, Texas

History

Huffman is a community located in Harris County, Texas. Like most of the region, the first European settlers came to the area in the early 1800’s. David Huffman first settled the community in 1839. It was during this time that the native tribes in the region began being displaced despite their living in the region for thousands of years.

The early economy was based on agriculture. The primary crops in the region were cotton, rice, corn, and cattle ranching. The lumber industry also played a vital role in the economy. As with much of the region, the railroad brought increased markets and growth to the area in the early 1900’s. The first railroad to serve Huffman was the Beaumont, Sour Lake and Western Railway. This caused the community’s population to more than double in just a few years time. In 1921, the town joined the oil boom in the region with the opening of the Sinclair Oil Pump Station.
