Seabrook and Kemah are part of southeast Texas’ popular and prosperous Bay Area. Seabrook, twenty-five miles from Houston, is well-known among Houston metropolitan area residents for its yacht clubs and marinas.
The channel that connects Clear Lake to Galveston Bay divides Seabrook from Kemah in Galveston County. The city was founded as Evergreen in 1898 along the Texas and New Orleans Railroad, when John Henry Kipp and James H. Bradford subdivided their lots to establish a township. Kemah was granted a post office in 1907. Kemah is now primarily a tourist and recreation destination, especially since the Kemah Boardwalk was established in 2001.
Seabrook and Kemah students attend Clear Creek Independent School District public schools. Home prices in the area range upwards from the low-hundred-thousands to the several millions along Seabrook’s Todville Road, Kemah’s Kipp Road and near Kemah’s Corinthian Yacht Club.
