Missouri City is a small suburb of Houston, Texas. It's a city that grew around the first railroad through the state, which connected Los Angeles to New Orleans. Missouri City grew even more when oil was discovered in the area, and when there was a threat of being incorporated into Houston-proper, the residents of Missouri City banded together to form a city government. Missouri City's population and culture are diverse. In fact, in 2000, Black Entertainment Television named Missouri City a model city for Middle-Class African Americans.
