Welcome to Memorial Villages
Autonomous, upscale hamlets with small-town roots.
To avoid being annexed by the city of Houston, these six communities, which had grown up around the area’s small farms, decided to incorporate. Each has its own mayor and city council, but they share some municipal services and all fall within the Spring Branch ISD boundaries.
Just east of the Inner Loop, this cluster of six independent cities (Spring Valley, Hilshire, Hedwig, Bunker Hill, Hunters Creek, and Piney Point) started to blossom after Interstate 10 was built in 1968. While each village has its own personality--not to mention deed restrictions--they each occupy the sweet spot between urban and suburban living, offering the best of both.
