Get to know Melissa...

Melissa is a small town, growing with a large attitude! I mean, they do have a Buc-ee's!

Melissa settlement began in the 1840s although the town didn't really take off until the Houston and Texas Central Railway arrived in the early 1870s. The towns namesake is not certain since there were two railroad executives with daughters named Melissa. The town's railroad connection drew off population from Highland, Texas, a small community about 2.5 miles north of Melissa.

A post office was granted in the first half of 1873 and by 1884 the town had a population estimated at 100. From 500 people in the mid 1920s, Melissa declined to less than 300 by 1949. It increased to 375 by the mid 1960s and to just over 600 in 1980. The 2000 Census shows a substantial increase to over 1,300.
