Imperial Refinery State Marker

On April 22, 1982 the Imperial Sugar Company dedicated a state historical marker at the Imperial Refinery. (The marker is now stored at the Sugar Land Heritage Foundation.) I found an article in the May 1982 issue of The Imperial Crown covering the dedication ceremony and a summary of the Kempner family's involvement with the company.

There are four other state historical markers within Sugar Land's city limits: the Sugar Land Auditorium, Sugar Land (community/town), Main Building on the Texas prison system's Central Unit, and Stafford's Plantation. There is also a Historic Texas Cemetery marker within its precincts: the Imperial Prison Farm Cemetery.
