Kendleton was originally a large plantation area of land in the western section of Fort Bend County. During the Reconstruction Era, free Negroes from Colorado and Washington Counties developed a colony of 100-acre plots. Having relocated several times, the community finally settled here.

For their outstanding achievement and affluence, the plaque is dedicated to the Black citizenry of Kendleton.
