Willis, TX

The History of Willis, TX

Willis, Texas is a city in Montgomery County, Texas. It is also known as the “Black Wall Street”. The town of Willis is said to have been named after Judge Willis Wilson who was an early settler. Wilson arrived in 1846 and set up his law practice there on Main Street. This area had one of the few black-owned businesses then on 1800s South Main Street. It was known for its cotton plantation that then created some of the largest cotton crops ever seen in East Texas.

Everything started when Willis Wilson built his own private mansion in 1881. It was just next to the First Baptist Church of Waller at 804 Charles Street, where he had moved his family out of Montgomery County into Texas. The home was very unique because it not only provided a place that he could use as his law office but also provided refuge for Black Americans who were traveling throughout Texas during segregation in search of better jobs and lives. After building this home, Willis’ brother Robert moved in with him and became the first black lawyer to practice law in Montgomery County which is now Conroe.

The city of Willis has many important figures who made contributions to the civil rights movement in Texas. One important figure is Dr. William David Chappelle, a Montgomery County resident and Willis native. He was also an activist who participated in boycotts of segregated public transportation systems, public buildings, restaurants, theaters, gas stations among others throughout the state of Texas during segregation.

Willis, TX Local Communities

The Willis Texas local communities have been a big part of the town’s history. Willis was first founded as a train stop in 1872, and the community grew up around the railroad. The town was named after one of the railroad’s executives, William D. Willis. In its early days, Willis was a major center of commerce in East Texas. The town had two newspapers, three cotton gins, and several grocery stores. Willis also had a Masonic Lodge, an Odd Fellows Lodge, and a Knights of Pythias Lodge.

The Willis Texas local communities have always been close-knit. Families have been living in the same neighborhoods for generations. The people of Willis are friendly and welcoming to newcomers. There is a sense of community in Willis that people don’t find too often anymore.

All of this changed dramatically in late 2015. A major hurricane struck the region, flooding most of the town and destroying over 200 homes. The businesses downtown were greatly impacted by the large amount of water flowing through the streets. The flooding also polluted many of the wells used for drinking water with saltwater from Galveston Bay. Around half of all families suffered some sort of damage to their homes, and thousands had no electricity or running water for several weeks after the storm. Many living on fixed incomes struggled to recover from such dramatic life changes and found it difficult to repair their homes adequately. One year later, hundreds still live without power or running water and repairs have been slow going.

For those that want to enjoy some quality family time, there is no better place than the historic Willis Little League Park. While the park itself is a local landmark and offers wonderful views of beautiful downtown Willis Texas, it is not what makes this venue so special. The fact of the matter is that anyone can build a ballpark, but it takes something truly special for thousands of young athletes and their families to call it home. That’s where the Willis Little League comes in…

Every year more than three thousand children from around the area compete on eighty plus teams within one of six different leagues. This allows parents and children alike to experience not only success but also failure as they learn about teamwork and sportsmanship among other things! Local sponsors do their part to ensure that the various teams are able to compete against one another. This means that there is always an opportunity for the community to gather and enjoy baseball at its finest…
