Here is a fascinating shot of the Woodlands back in 1969. Already you can see homes have been built in Section’s One, Two and parts of Five. You can even see the Behring home near the front entrance. They hadn’t even broken ground on the Country Club we see now. Back then, the Florida Turnpike was simply known as the “Sunshine State Parkway” and it looks like Commercial Blvd didn’t even continue past the Woodlands at that time.
Thanks to realtor Edie Grien for sharing this and many other historical photos.
