Town of The Woodlands Montgomery County Texas
THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS. The Woodlands is a community west of Interstate Highway 45 and eleven miles south of Conroe in southern Montgomery County. In 1972 the Mitchell Energy and Development Corporation,qv as a response to the growth of nearby Houston, began to build, on 23,000 acres, a planned community called The Woodlands. The first homes were ready for purchase in 1974, and by 1980 the community had a population of 11,197, six schools, six parks, five churches, and a public library. About 160 companies had opened offices there by 1981. In 1990 The Woodlands numbered 29,205 inhabitants.

The Woodlands:
From a Traveler's Guide to Historic Montgomery County
1836-1986, Texas Sesquicentennial Edition:

 

A dream of Mitchell Energy & Development Corporation, The Woodlands was in the planning 10 years before the first families began arriving in 1974. It will take approximately 25 years to fulfill the dream of six villages, 55,000 homes and apartments, a population of 180,000 and employment of 100,000. The 25,000 acres of beautiful terrain is a perfect setting for homes, schools, churches, recreational facilities, shopping, offices, and industry.
