Missouri City, Texas is located in Fort Bend County and Harris County. This historic town began with the purchase of land by Mr. R.M Cash and Mr. L.E. Luckle in 1890. They decided to advertise in the St. Louis, Missouri area, claiming the land they were selling was land of sunshine and eternal summer. An additional 89 acres was purchased by Mr. W.R. McElroy, bringing his promotional attempts alongside those of Cash and Luckle. He named the newly formed town Missouri City. It was registered in 1894, and ironically the first settlers were from the Arlington, Texas area. Today approximately 70,000 call Missouri City home.
