Humble takes its roots as a pioneering oil boom town, as petroleum has been the basis of Humble's economy since the beginning. The city was the namesake for Humble Oil, which later became the Exxon Corporation. While the proximity to Houston Intercontinental Airport and Lake Houston attracts new residents to Humble, it gave rise to fourteen new subdivisions. Along with the rapidly increasing growth of population came the need for more stores and services. Much of the retail growth occurred in Humble, but substantial commercial development also occurred in Kingwood and Atascocita. Old Humble is populated by artists and antique dealers. Opening in the mid-1980s, the one million square-feet Deerbrook Mall became the area's major commercial center.
