The Foster Community Museum between Richmond and Fulshear is hosting a picnic on May 5th. Many people may not know it, but the Foster community has a connection with Sugar Land. Sugarland Industries owned a large estate in the area. It was called Foster Farms. In fact, the Kempner family still owns some of the property.
It was a farming and ranching operation that lasted into the 1950s. From the later decades of the 19th century into the early 20th century, landowners in that area grew sugar cane which they sold to Imperial Sugar for milling and refining.
The picnic sounds like a great opportunity to enjoy some spring air in bucolic north Fort Bend County.
