Kemah Texas Real Estate and Community Information
Located on the Galveston Bay, Kemah has been ranked as the top tourist destination in the Greater Houston Area. With a population of just under 3,400, the town has a unique small-town vibe. This city allows you to live in a close-knit community while taking advantage of everything the major cities nearby have to offer.
In 1824, Michael Gouldrich, a stockraiser and farmer, was granted a 177-acre parcel of land. After the mysterious disappearance of Gouldrich, the land was acquired by William Vince. The land changed hands several more times until it was bought by Henry Kipp. The town Kipp founded was destroyed by the 1900 Galviston hurricane. The city was officially established in 1907 and has been growing since.
The town was again struck by a hurricane in 2008. When Hurricane Ike
rolled through, homes and businesses were damaged. Rebuilding took time, and today reminders remain of the serious effects of the storm.
