Learn Katy History at the Katy Heritage Museum

The actual site where old Katy Texas is situated today was once only wide open coastal prairie loaded with abundant wildlife, Native American hunters and numerous birds, ducks and geese . Until the late 1800’s this area was only a stage coach stop between Houston and San Antonio. During 1895 the Missouri-Kansas-Texas railroad set tracks and when a depot was built in 1898 Katy was already a flourishing small town with new citizens and growth. A majority of these early settlers were farmers who produced rice, cotton and citrus crops.

 

The Katy Heritage Museum is a 9,600 sq. ft. museum which contains vintage farming equipment and artifacts from Katy’s early agricultural and pioneering days. These items are on display for all to see and learn. There are numerous old photographs, and many unique antiques. The Museum is located at 6002 George Bush Dr. Katy Texas ( Old Katy). The museum is open from 10:00 A.M. until 2:00 P.M. every Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday and the first weekend of every month. The best part is the cost is my favorite answer of FREE. Groups can contact the museum for special tours.
