Wilchester TX History

Before the 1950s, the Memorial area was a rural place full of mature trees. Farms, stables, sawmills, and a handful of homes made up most of the area.

Several factors led to the area's development. In the 1950s and 1960s, the post-war housing boom led to Houston's westward expansion. The completion of Interstate 10 during the period was also a big factor. Which then led to commuting to downtown Houston becoming so much easier.

Developers started buying up properties around Buffalo Bayou. They transformed the lush tracts into luxury subdivisions for upper and middle-class families. Wilchester was one of these subdivisions.

Today, Wilchester is home to some top-rated schools. The community has access to retail and dining centers, and major business districts.
