Porter, Texas, lies in the northwest reaches of Houston, offering its residents a nice combination of rural and suburban living with urban opportunities not far down the road, including medical facilities providing LASIK eye surgery.

Porter is an unincorporated area of the Houston region, but that doesn’t mean its citizens are unable to access the same fine resources available to other small towns across the region. Porter’s 25,000 residents have access to their own school system, which became part of the New Caney Independent School District in the 1960s. In addition, Porter-area residents have access to the many fine medical facilities of the Houston area, including the Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center, which provides services from basic checkups to LASIK eye surgery.

Porter did not follow the pattern of the many Houston-area towns that incorporated in the 1950s, perhaps because the population was listed as being in the low triple digits around that time. Still, people have been living in the Porter area for more than a century, as the town’s post office was first opened in 1892. For most of its history, Porter supposed itself in the lumber and agriculture industries, although the Porter sawmill has been replace by the Porterwood Shopping Center. In fact, the town first got its name in honor of the sawmill, which was called Porter Mill.
