Location of Pasadena, Texas

Pasadena is a suburb of Houston, Texas located in Harris County, Texas. It was founded in 1893 by John H. Burnett of Galveston, Texas. At the time of its founding, the land's lush vegetation inspired Burnett to name the city after Pasadena, California. The Galveston Hurricane of 1900 caused many people to resettle in Pasadena. Clara Barton of the American Red Cross purchased 1.5 million strawberry plants and sent them to Pasadena to help victims of the flood get back on their feet. By the 1930's those crops had flourished enough that Pasadena was claiming the moniker of Strawberry Capital of the World. To honor that history, the city still holds an annual "Strawberry Festival," and today Strawberry Road stretches through much of the city near the location of the old strawberry crops.

Pasadena is the location of the last battle of the Texas Revolution, where the Mexican General Antonio López de Santa Anna was captured in 1836.

Today Pasadena is the largest suburb anchoring the Houston Metropolitan Area -- as of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 141,674. The city's employment is closely linked to the nearby Houston Ship Channel and its related industrial districts, as well as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in nearby Clear Lake, Texas. Because of its location near the enormous amount of refineries that dot the ship channel (which help to make Houston's petrochemical complex the largest in the nation), Pasadena has been dubbed with the local nickname of "Stinkadena," though many of the refineries along its border are located in Houston proper.

Pasadena was enshrined in film history when John Travolta, Debra Winger and others descended on the city to film the 1980 hit movie Urban Cowboy, which depicted life and young love in Pasadena, centered around the city's enormous honky-tonk bar, Gilley's, which was owned by country music star Mickey Gilley. In 1989 Gilley's burned down, but the building is still standing (the old sign can be found at the Cowboy Ranch, a local restaurant).
