Last update February 9, 2004
The population of Texas according to the 2002 Census is 21,518,555. With such a large
state there's room for many small towns. Some have some very unusual names!
Spotlight: Pasadena
Pasadena was founded in 1895. It grew slowly until a hurricane pounded the Galveston coast in 1900. The hurricane's
wrath was felt in Pasadena's fragile economy. Many Galveston survivors moved inland and settled in the Houston area,
which included Pasadena. To give them a quick cash crop, Clara Barton of the American Red Cross sent strawberry
plants. The strawberries flourished, and made Pasadena famous for it. An annual Strawberry festival and parade is held to
commemorate its roots. Later, Pasadena shifted from agriculture to industry. Today, Pasadena is hardly a small town. It
has a population of 143,527, and is the 16th largest city in Texas. Pasadena is where Arney calls home!
