On December 29, 2019, the city of Sugar Land will celebrate 60 years since it was officially incorporated as a city. The Sugar Land area has a rich history, even before our city was officially incorporated. Our rich history is just one of the many things that makes Sugar Land such a unique and special place. Fast-forwarding to today, Sugar Land is one of the most diverse cities in one of the most diverse counties in the nation.
