About Us


The City of Dickinson, Texas, incorporated in 1977, is a historic community. It has existed unincorporated since John Dickinson, a hero of the Texas Revolution, lived here in the 1830s. The 1999 population estimate was 18,500. Dickinson is located between League City, Texas City, Alvin, and Bacliff. Click here to see a map of the city.


Dickinson has been called "the best kept secret on the Gulf Coast," for its proximity to major attractions, and for its many other advantages. Dickinson is conveniently located on Interstate 45 and Dickinson Bayou, between Houston & Galveston, 20 minutes from the beach. Clear Lake Resort Area, Galveston Bay, the Johnson Space Center (NASA), as well as three major shopping malls are all within 10 miles. The community of "Dickinson," extends well beyond the boundaries of the City limits, and includes over 25,000 people, within the Dickinson school district.

Dickinson Bayou, a large navigable body of water, is lined by the largest stand of trees south of Houston, and as such, is readily discernible from the air. The Bayou was once a dredged, industrial waterway, but now is a 20-foot deep recreational attraction for fishing, boating, swimming, and water-skiing.
