Hunters Creek Village TX History


Like most of the Memorial area, some of Hunters Creek Village's early settlers were farmers. Sawmills and a handful of homes were in the area during the 1930s.

Growth in Hunters Creek started in earnest a couple of decades later, during the 1950s and 60s. The completion of the I-10 and Houston's housing boom led to developers building subdivisions and homes for upper-middle-class families along the Buffalo Bayou.

During this period, Houston was looking to expand its borders to include unincorporated neighborhoods. Looking to prevent annexation and preserve residential zoning, Hunters Creek, along with 5 other villages, petitioned for incorporation.

In 1954, Hunters Creek was incorporated with a mayor-alderman type of government. By the mid-1960s, Hunters Creek Village had a school and a church.

From 1960 to 1980, the village's population almost doubled, from 2,478 to 4,580.

Today, Hunters Creek Village operates as an independent city. It also co-operates the Memorial Villages Police Department with Bunker Hill and Piney Point. The Village Fire Department and the Memorial Villages Water Authority serve all 6 villages.

Forbes lists Hunters Creek as one of the "Top Suburbs to Live Well". A BusinessWeek study named Hunters Creek Village the most expensive suburb in Texas.

Hunters Creek features gated subdivisions, upscale homes, and grand estates among the most expensive neighborhoods in west Houston.
