History:

Lake Jackson was founded in 1944, when a business man named Jesse H. Price, along with four partners, developed a new community that would give workers participating in the construction of the Sugar Land Refinery a place to live. The city was named Lake Jackson because a number of small lakes were built around the town, and a large lake was planned.

However, the lake was never built; in fact, today only one lake remains in the city. The city tried to adopt the name of the lake, Oyster Creek, but it officially remained Lake Jackson. Lake Jackson was officially incorporated on August 24, 154, with George A. Kahn, Jr serving as the first mayor.
