Neighborhoods Humble and Atascocita

Humble and Atascocita

Two of Houston’s northeast corridor communities, Humble and Atascocita, share an abundance of natural beauty, and friendly folks. Both communities lie within a ten-mile radius of the Intersection of U.S. Highway 59-North (Eastex Freeway) and FM 1960.

First known as Hunters’ Paradise to early settlers, Humble (pronounced “umble”) was named after P. S. Humble, a settler who operated a ferry across the San Jacinto River in the mid-19th-century. Humble gained fame as the site of some of Texas’ earliest oil fields. Humble residents enjoy life in a small town – downright rural living – that is just minutes away from Houston’s central districts. It is also close to Bush Intercontinental Airport (ten miles), where a number of Humble’s residents are employed.

Six miles east of Humble is Atascocita (Spanish for “obstruction”.) The heavily wooded area was once the Spanish government’s stronghold against the neighboring – and threatening – French in Louisiana at the close of the 18th-century. Atascocita and its neighbor, Walden, both fringe beautiful Lake Houston, a man-made lake famous for its fishing and recreational activities. Homes in the area range from large, country club estates to smaller homes in well-planned subdivisions.
