Hilshire Luxury Real Estate and Neighborhood Guide
Location is one of Hilshire Village’s best qualities. The neighborhood lies north of the interstate and follows the contours of Spring Branch‘s namesake minor bayou to the west. Westview Drive and Wirt Road border the neighborhood to the north and east, respectively.

Before its incorporation, Hilshire Village was a 30-acre plot that Frank Bruess bought in the 1940s. He had moved his family from Missouri, as he saw Houston as a fast-growing city. The name Hilshire originated from a country estate in England called Hillshire (with two L’s). Bruess adopted the name and developed the land.
In 1955, the city was incorporated along with the other 5 villages.
Like most of the Memorial Villages, a zoning ordinance helps preserve Hilshire’s charm – and the effect is gorgeous. Manicured lawns, sprawling backyards, and elegant homes line the city’s quaint streets.
