In 2007, the population was 16,008, according to City-Data.[2] The community is located on the Hardy Toll Road, Missouri Pacific Railroad, and Farm to Market Road 525.[1]

The Aldine area is nearby Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport, which is the second largest aviation facility in Texas. The name is pronounced "oll-DEEN" (rhyming with "keen") rather than "oll-DYNE" (rhyming with "wine").[citation needed]



Aldine, built on the International–Great Northern Railroad, was named after a local farm family. A post office operated in Aldine from 1896 to 1935; after 1935, mail was delivered from Houston. In 1914 Aldine included two general stores, a fig preserver, and several poultry breeders and several dairymen. The population briefly reached 100 in 1925. In the 1930s and 1940s the population decreased to between thirty and forty residents. The Aldine Independent School District integrated by federal order in 1965. Aldine, with renewed population growth in the 1970s, had 12,623 residents in 1986 and 11,133 residents in 1990.[1]
