Conroe is located in southeastern Texas within the Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land metropolitan area. It's about 40 miles north of the city of Houston. As of 2012, the population of Conroe was 61,533 residents. It's nestled in the Piney Woods Region of East Texas, and was named for Union Calvary officer and lumberman Isaac Conroe, who founded a sawmill in the area in 1881. Until the first decade of the 21st century, the town of Conroe was usually described as "a sleepy little backwater town north of Houston." In order to attract new residents, city officers offered incentives to home developers. As a result, Conroe became a "hotbed" of new construction and new residents. It also helped that Conroe is only about seven miles southeast of Lake Conroe, a popular 22,000-acre recreational lake. The lake lies on the west fork of the San Jacinto River, just west of Interstate 45, off of State Highway 105. Lake Conroe is 21 miles in length and covers 20,118 acres. About 5,000 acres lies within the Sam Houston National Forest, which offers all sorts of outdoor activities, including fishing, boating, hiking, camping, horseback riding and more. Downtown Conroe has two historic theaters, and an outdoor amphitheater offers free concerts April-September.
