One of Harris County’s most affluent zip codes, 77429, is in the Cypress area northwest of greater Houston. Settled by German immigrants in the 1840s, street names like Telge and Huffmeister reflect that early influence. Houston extended to Cypress in the 1950s and today the area is well-established as a thriving suburb of master-planned communities within minutes of George H. W. Bush International Airport. Tomball shares its neighbor Cypress’ German origins. Tomball is named for Congressman Thomas H. Ball, an early 20th-century politician revered for routing the railroads through the town. The area grew significantly when Humble Oil and Refining Company discovered oil there in 1933, and growth continues as energy and technology corporations choose Tomball locations. Both Tomball and Cypress benefit from the extension of Highway 249, the Tomball Parkway, into an outer loop road that more directly links the areas to Houston.
