FC: Chris & Lauren;'s Photo Book 2011
1: This book is a record of our first year at Ridge Point High School. This year has been very exciting and full of great memories, and we can't wait to have many more. So sit back, relax, and flip through the pages. We hope you enjoy it.
2: The name Ridge Point is based on the history and influence of the railroad industry that developed in the 19th century. Buffalo Bayou, Brazos, and Colorado Railways 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.
3: 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.
