George W. Butler was the town's first settler and he arrived in 1873. A brickyard was the first business to open and more continued to pour in. At first, the town was named after its first resident, but this changed when J.C. League purchased the land the town was on from a man named Muldoon.
The original site for the town was located on the line of the Galveston, Houston and Henderson railroad, further assuring the town of its future. League also donated land for the first school in the area that was called the Little Green School. As the railroad finished their station at League City, more people began to settle in the area. A saloon went up and an in known as Straggler's Hall opened for business.
League City residents were generally ranchers, but eventually this trended more into farming as people took advantage of the rich Texas soil .In 1896, the post office was built and the area continued to grow. The International-Great Northern, the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad and Galveston-Houston Electric railroad joined the first railroad in coming through the town.
In 1900, the massive hurricane that swept through Galveston destroyed the bridge over Clear Creek, but the damage was quickly repaired and business continued as usual. The population remained steady for the next few years, until 1943 when the Humble Oil company opened a tank farm and several railroad shops were opened.
