In 2008, the city was rated as the 18th best place in Texas to live by Money magazine. In 2014, League City was ranked 16th on Newsmax magazine's list of "The Top 25 Most Uniquely American Cities and Towns."League City is named after General Sam Houston's hometown of Lexington, Kentucky. The area that would become League City was first settled by Europeans in 1822 when John Richardson Sr., a Scottish immigrant who arrived from New York via Canada and married into a local family; he became one of Galveston County’s earliest settlers. He built his home on what is now Bay Area Boulevard (then called Point Bolivar Road) between present-day Dixie Farm Road and Interstate 45 North Freeway near Clear Creek where it empties into Galveston Bay at San Leon Pass (now known as Old San Leon). The settlement remained sparsely populated until after Texas became independent from Mexico in 1836 following the Battle of San Jacinto with forces under General Sam Houston leading to victory over Mexican dictator Antonio López de Santa Anna.
