Frostwood TX History
The area where Frostwood lies was primarily rural, with farms and sawmills dotting the lush expanse around the Buffalo Bayou.
A couple of things contributed to the area’s development, not just the completion and improvement of roads leading to downtown. Houston’s housing boom and later westward expansion also boost the community's progression.
After WWII, developers started building subdivisions along the Buffalo Bayou. Most homes built during this period were marketed toward middle- and upper-class families.
During the same period in the 1950s and 60s, Houston was expanding its borders. The city started annexing unincorporated neighborhoods outside Loop 610. This includes Frostwood and the rest of the Memorial West area. The nearby Memorial Villages filed for incorporation and became independent cities.
Today, Frostwood is among the most expensive neighborhoods in Houston. Strong property values in the area can also be attributed to many things. This includes the community’s deed restrictions, active homeowners association, and central location.
