Pearland began as a community called Mark Belt which was little more than a post office and a railroad side switch in 1882. In 1894 the name of the community was changed to Pearland with the Brazoria County courthouse by Witold von Zychlinkski (a Polish noble). Zychlinkski saw the number of fruits being harvested and thought it would be a good name for the city in general. At first, the city was an “agricultural Eden” but after the Hurricanes of 1900 and 1915 most of the fruit trees were destroyed. Agriculture began to bounce back in 1914, but a freeze in 1918 hurt farming again. Oil was discovered in 1934, but it did not help the population grow immediately. The 1970s saw a boom in population and the city has been growing ever since.
