Neighborhood Guide: Piney Point Village TX
Nestled within the south-central portion of the Memorial Villages, Piney Point Village is a 2.1-square mile independent city.
Piney Point has Bunker Hill to the west, Hedwig to the north, Hunters Creek to the east, and Houston to the south. Its borders follow the contours of the Buffalo Bayou, and though most of the city sits north of the Bayou, a small portion is south of it.
The city’s name derives from its early history. In 1824, Stephen F. Austin granted John D. Taylor a league of land – more than 4,600 acres. This league was centered on an area called “pine point,” located at the southernmost turn of the Buffalo Bayou. Taylor’s house came to be known as Piney Point.
A few decades later, in 1885, Piney Point was a station on the Texas Western Railroad. Like most of the Memorial Villages and areas surrounding Houston, Piney Point was populated with farms and sawmills during these early periods.
By the 1950s and 60s, Houston’s suburban boom pushed development in nearby neighborhoods – Piney Point included. Upper-middle-class subdivisions took root along the Buffalo Bayou. In the midst of these developments, Houston was extending its borders outside the confines of Loop 610.
To preserve its residential zoning, Piney Point filed for a petition of incorporation, along with 5 other villages: Hilshire, Hunters Creek, Bunker Hill, Hedwig, and Spring Valley. By 1955, Piney Point Village was a city with an alderman type of government.
In addition to becoming part of the collective known as the Memorial Villages, Piney Point elects its own mayor and city council.
The city jointly operates the Memorial Police Department alongside Bunker Hill and Hunters Creek. The Village Fire Department serves all six villages. All six are also under the Memorial Villages Water Authority.
Still a largely residential community, Piney Point Village has deed restrictions that ban any form of business inside the city. This, and building ordinances, have helped keep the tranquil ambience around Piney Point. A village arborist assists homeowners in keeping their verdant grounds healthy and thriving.
Piney Point Village is the wealthiest area in Texas by per capita income and its homes reinforce this title.
The majority of the Piney Point Village is under the 77024 zip code, while the area that sits south of the Buffalo Bayou has the 77063 Harris County zip code.
Zip codes near Piney Point Village TX include: 77055, 77008, 77007, 77019, 77027, 77056, and 77057.
