Lake Jackson is a city of around 28,000 people, located in Brazoria County, Texas. Lake Jackson was founded in the 1940s as a planned community, meant to be a modern-day company town in support of a new plant built by the Dow Chemical Company.
Lake Jackson is noted for the curving, somewhat whimsical design of its streets, owing to the fact that the designers didn’t want it to be another boring “company town”, and the fact that the designers wanted to remove as few trees as possible when building the streets. Most of their names also end in “way”, and they go by names such as “This Way” and “That Way”, owing to the sense of humor Alden B. Dow, the original planner of the city.
Federal cases in Lake Jackson are heard in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, which has its main office in Houston, and other courthouses around the district.
