Memorial West TX History


Like most of west Houston, the Memorial West area used to be made up of farms and sawmills. The area's development started in earnest during the post-war housing boom that came about in the 1950s and 60s.

The construction of Interstate 10, which made it easier to reach downtown Houston, as well as the rising demand for housing, led developers to build subdivisions around the Buffalo Bayou.

During the same period, Houston started growing westward. Unincorporated areas were annexed into Bayou City.

The lush surroundings, commercial development, and growing job centers drew people into Memorial West. Improving amenities, like schools and retail centers, also factored into the area's popularity.

Today, Memorial West homes are still very popular and are among the most desirable in west Houston.
