Memorial TX History

During the 1930s, the area now known as the Memorial used to be largely wooded and made up of stables and timber mills. There were some homes in the area, mostly ranch-style homes on sprawling lots.

Houston started expanding beyond the Loop during a housing boom in the 1950s and 1960s. Thanks to the completion of the I-10, developers looked to the west, building upper-middle-class subdivisions along the Buffalo Bayou.

Residential and commercial development in the Memorial continued over the next four decades. Development in the area is, however, uneven. The Memorial area is home to deed-restricted neighborhoods, gated communities, and independent cities with townhomes, single-family homes, condos, and luxury estates.

Today, Memorial offers a wide array of homes in different architectural styles. Some of the area’s original ranch-style and traditional homes still stand, though most have been replaced with new construction homes.
