About Us

Welcome to Navasota Texas

Navasota is a community you can easily call home. With neighbors smiling from across the yard, people eager to lend a hand and friends always close by, Navasota is the Texas you’ve heard about.

"No matter if you are new, just visiting, or have lived here for many years, thank you for spending time with us.  We have a close, friendly, caring community of people who live and work here and our roots go back well over 150 years when the city was founded by cotton farmers, ranchers and later the arrival of the railroads.  You can find us easily, on State Highway 6 between College Station & Houston.  Navasota is the world headquarters for Heat Transfer Research, Inc. (HTRI) and boasts as having the largest drill stem manufacturer in the world located here. 

Navasota has a thriving business community, with over 1500 working at major industries alone, there are many development sites available, local workforce office, live community theatre, a large number of city owned parks for outdoor entertainment, golfing at Pecan Lakes Golf Course, downtown shopping & city hall plaza, live music venues, and a variety of dining options.  Navasota was awarded Train Town USA designation by Union Pacific Railroad and is certified by the Texas Department of Agriculture as a GO TEXAN Certified Retirement Community.  The Texas legislature designated us as “The Blues Capital of Texas”, as Navasota is where famed blues songster Mance Lipscomb was born and lived.  Drop in the Horlock House, to meet and see the works of our Artists in Residency.  You can also visit bronze statues of Lipscomb, along with famous French explorer LaSalle and Texas Ranger Frank Hamer, who was city marshal here and who led the search and eventual demise of Bonnie & Clyde.  

Navasota takes pride as a clean, relaxing, safe community and is a growing suburban area where commercial development, along with residential neighborhoods, grow and prosper.  Many folks visit to see the beauty of the landscape, including the stately Victorian & Gothic style homes.  We have a quality school district, hospital and close access to metropolitan areas.  I also invite you to enjoy our annual festivals like the Texas Birthday Bash or nearby at the Texas Renaissance Festival.  We also have a six flags monument that is the gateway to Washington-On-The-Brazos State Park, where Texas independence was signed, just six miles west of Navasota.  We also partner with Grimes County and the Navasota/Grimes County Chamber of Commerce working with existing and new businesses that make Navasota their home."
