The cities history now stands on the tribal hunting grounds of the karankawa Indian tribes when all of the areas were wide open plains and where the wildlife roamed freely. Its first inhabitants, and by this I mean the first settlers set ground at Cane creek way back in 1872.

It was known for large herds of roaming buffalo and large flocks of geese, wild ducks, Sandhill, longhorn cattle, deer and wolves. Its current name of Katy is a shortening of the name from the first railroad through the area that connected Missouri – Katy – Texas, hence the shortened version of Katy. The original settlement of Cane Island was so named for the sugar cane that abounded wild in the area, and which was harvested and turned into sugar. This sugar was loaded onto Missouri to Texas training and shipped for sale to other regions.
