Pearland, Texas was originally known as Mark Belt, Texas in the late 1800s. The city’s name was eventually changed to Pearland in 1893 because of the abundance of Pear trees being grown. Because of a series of natural disasters there are no longer pear trees in Pearland. Forbes Magazine has ranked Pearland as the 34th fastest growing city in the nation. In 2000, Pearland had a population of 38,000 residents and it has since grown to about 90,000 residents in 2008 in part due to its popularity as a suburban oasis among many Houston lawyers.
