Don’t mess with Texas! It’s more than a not-so-humble slogan—it’s a way of life for those who call the Lone Star State home. Texas has an incredibly rich history, from its nine years of being an independent republic to becoming the second most populous state the U.S. Many colorful figures and stories have come out of cities like Houston and Kingwood, building on the solid flooring that Texas pioneers like Jim Bowie and Sam Houston laid. Check out this infographic from our Kingwood hardwood flooring store to learn more fun Texas tidbits, like the fact that there are about two-thirds as many cattle as there are people in the whole state!
