Behold the Ridge Point High School Crest. Purple Reign!
Ridge Point High School Background Information
The nomination of ‘Ridge Point High School’ is based on the history and influence of the railroad industry which developed in the Missouri City / Stafford area in the 19th century. Buffalo Bayou, Brazos, and Colorado Railways (BBB&C) built the first operational railroad in Texas in the 1850’s. The line ran through the northern part of Missouri City and ended at Stafford’s Point which is now Stafford. The rail line was later extended along present day Highway 6. These rail lines were instrumental in the economic growth of the area as they not only provided transportation to markets for crops and livestock, but also served as a shipping point for the Blue Ridge Oil Field and salt mine. The economic growth of the area drew many people to make their homes in the area and commute by railroad to nearby towns such as Stafford’s Point and Sugar Land.
