Bunker Hill Village TX History

Bunker Hill Village’s early history mirrors that of its neighbors – it was a rural community made up of farms and sawmills. A smattering of homes were also in the area.

During the 1950s and 60s, growing interest in the area as well as the completion of Katy Freeway led to a number of developments, including upper-middle-class subdivisions along the Buffalo Bayou.

Like Hunters Creek, Hedwig, and Piney Point, Bunker Hill Village was incorporated in 1954 with a mayor-council form of government. This ensured that the community and the surrounding villages kept their mainly residential zoning and way of life.

At the time, Houston was experiencing a suburban boom and was looking to expand its borders. Bunker Hill and the rest of the Memorial Villages succeeded in avoiding this annexation.

As an independent city, Bunker Hill operates the Memorial Villages Police Department with Piney Point and Hunters Creek. The Villages Fire Department and the Memorial Villages Water Authority serve the city.

Since its incorporation, Bunker Hill Village flourished and grew to house more and more people. Through its zoning ordinances and deed restrictions, the city has maintained its tranquil vibe amidst changes in and around the area.

From its humble beginnings, the neighborhood has grown into an affluent community of elegant homes and luxury mansions. Bunker Hill Village was included in Forbes’ 2008 list of “Top Suburbs to Live Well.”
