Indian Trail Houston History

Like most neighborhoods in the Tanglewood and Memorial areas, Indian Trail used to be well outside Houston’s borders. The city’s housing boom during the 1950s and 1960s spurred development in the area, with developers opting to build along the banks of the Buffalo Bayou.

Upscale subdivisions and luxury communities thrived in the area, growing with the completion of Interstate 10 and Memorial Drive.

Indian Trail and nearby Indian Circle were among the communities that came at the heels of the housing boom. Today, the gated community is highly coveted for its security and exclusivity.

Former president George H. W. Bush used to own a house in Indian Trail.
