"Welcome to the City of Huntsville, where a warm welcome awaits! The city of Huntsville has enjoyed a rich history of economic growth since its founding in 1835. We are a community that is proud of its past but is looking to the future. Huntsville is a prime location for business owners optimally positioned on the I-45 corridor between Houston & Dallas. This charming community is also home to Sam Houston State University, one of the fastest-growing universities in the state, which provides the city with a continuous pool of talented graduates entering the workforce. We have many projects underway strengthening the city for what is yet to come. Let us help you find a home here in Home Sweet Huntsville!" -Mayor Brauninger
