Thats out 59N just passed Kingwood. The zip code for Porter Tx is 77365 and it is zoned to the New Caney ISD. Hope that helps.

Its a small town that is getting swallowed up by Houston as we speak. Currently lots of construction to widen 59 but soon Porter should be 8 lanes. Porter has easy access to Kingwood and Humble and a good commute if your headed downtown or work out in East Tx.

I know absolutely nothing about Porter, TX other than what Google Earth is telling me, but it appears to be about 10 NE of Humble, TX with at least some clearcutting and planned neighborhood construction. Uh, directly under the Google Earth marker there appears to be an extensive collection of doublewide homes.

What's their recommendation based on? If you would like a sense of rural living ....could be your cup of tea. Sunny

Sorry for the late response but I lived in Porter and thought I would share a bit of info.

First, the traffic and construction on FM 1314 is horrible. But as soon as they open up all 4 lanes, it should be better. Depending on where you move, there are some pretty run down areas. It is growing in population. More construction of hotels as well due in part to the new Dyno park that is to be constructed in New Caney in 2010. The schools are not that good, Conroe or New Caney.

Good luck in whatever you choose.

I have lived in Porter for 30 yrs and my husband for 46 yrs. Yes it is growing and we plan to retire and move to Crockett in the next few yrs. Bring yourself and family. It is you who make up the town not the town making you. To crowded for me, but for young families it is fine. Good Luck

Frankly Porter is a bit white trashy. Riverwalk is ok but there are better acreage communities around the area. I can't really think of one positive quality Porter has that would recommend it as a place to live other than you can buy a house very cheap there.
