Historicial Development: Isaac Conroe was one of Montgomery County's most enduring sawmillers before 1900. His main offices and a sawmill were at Conroe but he operated mill locations at Egypt, about two miles to the southwest of the town; Haltom, location unknown; and his large sawmill at Beach, two miles east of Conroe, which he later sold to Trinity River Lumber Company.
