Living in Rosenberg, Texas

Located just 30 minutes from downtown Houston, Rosenberg was founded in 1883 when the Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe Railway company laid out a town site named after its president, Henry Rosenberg. Rosenberg’s historic downtown is the first and only state-designated Cultural District in Fort Bend County, and home to a burgeoning cultural arts scene. A collaboration of business owners, artists, and community leaders have converged to help make Main Street Rosenberg a center of activities for Fort Bend County and beyond. Rosenberg has experienced phenomenal growth over the last decade, thanks to its business-friendly atmosphere, strategic location, quality of life and convenient access to the ports of Freeport and Houston.

Rosenberg encompasses approximately 108 square miles, over 37 of which are within its corporate limits. Approximately 63% of this land is undeveloped, meaning the city has much more room to grow. Over the last several years, the city has worked to raise the bar for the quality of development within its limits and extraterritorial jurisdiction, including higher lot size standards and open space requirements.
