Memorial Villages TX Neighborhood Guide
Collectively known as The Memorial Villages, or simply the Villages, the upscale area west of the Loop 610 was very different during the 1930s. Back then, it was home to very few farms, stables, and large country estates.
During the 1950s and 60s, the newly constructed Katy Freeway (Interstate 10) and growth in Houston sparked interest in the Memorial Villages area. Upper-middle-class subdivisions were developed along the Buffalo Bayou.
In an effort to preserve zoning and the villages’ residential atmosphere, four of the six villages filed petitions for incorporation in 1954. The last two filed petitions a year later.
Today, the six independent villages have their own police and fire departments and are under the same water authority.
Four villages are comfortably nestled between the Katy Fwy and the Buffalo Bayou. Hilshire and Spring Valley sit north of the freeway.
Forbes lists the 77024 as one of the most expensive zip codes in Texas, along with Houston’s affluent River Oaks neighborhood. It also has one of the highest average household incomes in the vicinity.
