Formerly a separate and distinct community on its own, North Houston, Texas is now an unincorporated area located in Harris County. Originally located on the Burlington-Rock Island Railroad, just 10 miles northwest of downtown Houston, North Houston residents pleaded with the city for its incorporation as a ward after a devastating hurricane left it mud-bound and without utilities. Originally known as Tomball, named after Thomas Henry Ball, a Texas politician and Democratic member of the House of Representatives. It took the name Scoville after a station stop on the Trinity and Brazos Valley Railway was established in 1907. From 1908 to 1909, Scoville was technically just a post office and nothing more. The Scoville Post Office was replaced the following year by the North Houston post office, which eventually closed down in 1928.

Slow to grow, by 1914 North Houston had only a single general store and not much else. If you were to look at some old state highway maps from the mid to late 30s, North Houston only appears to have a single building. While the discovery of oil in the area in the late 30s was promising, by the 1980s all that was left of North Houston southwest of State Highway 149 were two abandoned railroad stations and a few other random homes.
