Briargrove Park/Walnutbend TX History
Briargrove Park used to be a rural area like other Memorial subdivisions. It houses a dairy farm. An oilman owned Westchase as a cattle ranch.
J.L. Phillips led the development in 1963. He used the existing two-story farmhouse as an office and built his own home within the subdivision.
Early homes have three pine trees, and some of them still stand today.
The surrounding areas improved with mixed-use developments like the Westchase district. Dining and retail areas filled Westheimer Road. Despite these, Briargrove Park remains a serene residential area with winding streets, classic gas lamps, and mature pines.
