Who are we?
The Cypress Historical Society was established in March of 2008. Our interests include history, genealogy, and preservation of local artifacts. We hold various social events for the members, public history presentations, and study the genealogy of the Cypress families.
For many years, the area along old Highway 290 known as Cypress was “just a wide spot in the road”. Oh, yes, there were a few homes, a couple of hotels, two stores, and at least one saloon, but the town of Cypress City platted by William R. Baker in 1856, just didn’t happen....until more than a hundred years later.
Today, traffic whizzes along on the Northwest Freeway going east and west to and from Houston. Many people exit the freeway at Cypress to grab a bite to eat, go shopping, buy groceries, or get their vehicle serviced before hurrying to their homes in one of the many subdivisions or apartment complexes that are a part of the Cypress scene today.
