Stagecoach Texas

 

Stagecoach Texas is located in Montgomery County just north of Tomball and south of MagnoliaStagecoach TX has a history going back to the name.  The town was developed on a 19th century stagecoach route thus the name Stagecoach.  The development was begun back in 1958 and back then was known as Stagecoach Farms.  The new community had two small lakes Lake Apache and Lake Hardin, with two parks for the use of the residents.  A civic club was started back in the 1960's.  The first mayor was chosen in 1974 and the community incorporated in 1980 using the name Stagecoach TX. 

 

 

 

Unlike most of our communities Stagecoach TX is an actual town.  As of the 2000 census there were 455 people with 155 households.  There were 162 homes at that time.  There have been new homes that have been built since then so I expect the population is larger now.   They have a mayor, city council and their own police force.

Lake Apache and Lake Hardin are still in use.  I talked to a client to see if he knew if there were really alligators in the lake.  To the best of his knowledge there have not been alligators in the lake but I bet that keeps the kids out.  He did tell me that a boy just recently caught a 30 pound cat fish.  The lake is for the use of the residents and according to my client you do get to keep what you catch.

If you are looking for a country subdivision with light restrictions this is the place for you.  Home sales currently fall in the $170,000 to $370,000 range.  Homes are built from the 1960's to the present time.  There are occasionally Stagecoach lots on MLS for sale.  Most home sites have 1 acre with as much as 5 acres.  You can have horses and I believe you can also have FHA project animals.  The towering pine trees and large oaks make a great habitat for all kinds of local wildlife such as deer, raccoons and opossums.

The majority of the community is in the Magnolia Independent School District.  The very front of Stagecoach before you get to the lakes is in the Tomball Independent School district.  Both are exceptional school districts.
