BOY, TEXAS. Boy, originally known as Japan, was on State Highway spur 494 and the Southern Pacific Railroad eighteen miles southeast of Conroe in southeastern Montgomery County. In 1979 the settlement consisted of a railroad station, a school, several churches, and numerous businesses. By that date, however, the community had been overtaken by suburban development between Porter and Humble, four miles to the south.
