Wild Peach is located off State Highway 36 about four miles northwest of Brazoria in western Brazoria County. The town began as a residential development in the early 1950s. By 1958 citizens had constructed a community center, church, and several businesses. The residents also organized a volunteer fire department. Wild Peach appeared on county highway maps in the early 1960s, but no population figures were available until the 1990 census reported 2,440 residents. At that time the town still had its community center, a church, and grain elevators. In 2000 Wild Peach remained a residential area with a population of 2,498.
