Beach

The site of Beach is located on State Highway 105 about two miles east of Conroe in central Montgomery County. This community began in the late 1800s as a sawmill town and stop on the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway. Isaac Conroe, founder of nearby Conroe, chose the location for a sawmill to take advantage of the burgeoning timber industry in the region. He named the site Beach and constructed a large frame building that included a commissary, offices, and living quarters. Highway maps during the 1930s showed dwellings, businesses, and a church in Beach. As the lumber business declined, sawmill towns such as Beach also declined. By 1990 the community did not appear on highway maps. No population estimates were available in 2000.
