League City History

The site of a Karankawa Indian village was chosen to establish League City. The city was founded by three different families named the Butlers, Cowarts, and Perkins. The earliest resident of the town, George W. Butler, arrived in the city in 1873 from Louisiana. In 1893, he was followed by J.C. League who acquired rights of the land. League acquired these rights from a man named Muldoon who had become a priest and, therefore, relinquished his rights over the land. The early settlers of the city originally raised cattle but, after the Clear Creek Development was organized in 1890, they turned to agriculture in order to sell land to farmers.
