The new 2920 RoadHouse restaurant is located on FM 2920 midway between Waller and Tomball. At this spot on the Texas road map stood the Township of New Kentucky. Established before 1831, a thriving town where trade goods were bought and sold and lonesome and weary travelers found rest for the night making camp under the large oaks, until its trade was captured by the present city of Houston, established 30 miles away in 1836. The township was abandoned about 1840. However, it was here at the crossroads of New Kentucky, on April 16, 1836 where two wagon trails crossed, the path of independence was chosen which lead to the birth of the nation of Texas.
