Some historical background about Fort Bend County.
Fort Bend, founded in 1837, has a prominent place in Texas history. Also, it was created from portions of Austin, Harris, and Brazoria County. Several historical events like the Civil War or the Anglo-American colonization contributed to the city we know today.
The economy of the county is mainly based on agriculture. Cotton and sugar are the main produced crops. One of the most important and historical enclosures that Fort Bend has is its Courthouse. The Fort Bend County Courthouse is one of the strongest examples of the “Texas Renaissance” style, a neo-classicism favored in the early decades of the twentieth century.
