Cypress TX Community History
Historical artifacts found near Cypress Creek point to human presence in the area as early as 7500 BC. The area was originally populated by Native American tribes until the settlement of German immigrants in the 19th century. German influence from that period is still present in well-recognized street and school names around Cypress like Huffmeister and Matzke. The first school in Cypress was built in 1884 as a one-room structure. From that humble beginning, it evolved into Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District - the second largest in the metro area after Houston ISD. The development in Cypress Texas hit a rapid pace with the discovery of oil along the Gulf Coast in 1904. Cypress Texas was mostly rural and it's residents focused on rice and dairy farming until it's suburbanization in the 1950s.
