Texas - In 1845, Texas became the 28th state to join the United States. This huge state has 57 cities with a population of 50,000 or higher and 28 cities with 100,000 or more. Texas ranks 2nd in population in the U.S. It is as large as all of New England, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and North Carolina combined. That is why storage needs are considerably higher here than other states. Tons of self storage facilities are found throughout Texas. Houston, the most populated city in the state, has several mini self storage unit facilities that can safely store automobiles, boats, RV’s, furniture and any other valuables. There are numerous self storage facilities near the historical landmark, the Alamo and also close to the Texas State Capitol.
