Piney Point Village TX History
In 1824, John D. Taylor received a league (about 4,605 acres) and a labor of land. Taylor’s league centered on “pine point,” an area on the southernmost turn of the Buffalo Bayou. He settled in the area and called his house Piney Point.
By 1885, Piney Point was a station on the Texas Western Railroad. A number of German farmers had also settled in the general vicinity.
During Houston’s suburban boom in the 1950s and 60s, development in the area started in earnest. Several upper middle-class subdivisions were developed along the Buffalo Bayou.
During this period, Piney Point, along with five neighboring villages, was a thriving community. The six villages filed for petitions to prevent annexation and preserve residential zoning.
Piney Point Village was incorporated in 1955 with an alderman form of government, with its own mayor and five city council members.
As a part of the Memorial Villages, Piney Point operates the Memorial Villages Police Department. The village operates alongside Hunters Creek and Bunker Hill. The Village Fire Department and the Memorial Villages Water Authority also serve the Villages.
Like the other Villages, the city has deed restrictions and building ordinances. These ordinances preserve the area’s serene country-living atmosphere. Commercial establishments of any kind are not allowed within the city’s borders.
The city has a reputation for its efforts in preserving its wooded areas as well. Piney Point has a village arborist to help residents care for their trees.
Today, the City of Piney Point Village is one of the wealthiest places in the state of Texas by per capita income.
