About This Place
La Marque (formerly Lamarque) is a city in the U.S. state of Texas within the Houston–Sugar Land–Baytown metropolitan area. As of the 2010 U.S. Census, the city population was 14,509. Located in Galveston County near oil fields, it is the hometown of Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison and Robin Armstrong.
In the 2000s, rising real estate costs in Galveston forced many families to move to other areas, including La Marque. This meant an influx of children from the Galveston Independent School District into other school districts.
