Welcome To Memorial
Back when Memorial Drive was just a country road, the area wasn't much more than farmland and wide open spaces. Now, the long thoroughfare that this neighborhood gets its name from is a vibrant residential community between the Katy Freeway and the meandering Buffalo Bayou waterway.

5 Reasons To Love Memorial
Memorial is one of the most popular area's of Houston. Here are just a few reasons to love Memorial from top REALTOR®, Erica Wetherell.
The Real Estate
Mostly comprised of single-family homes on large, wooded lots, Memorial offers a wide variety of home options, including older ranch-style homes, new construction and grand estates. Home styles are diverse and appeal to a range of architectural tastes, so there's something for everyone.
The median sales price for real estate in Memorial has appreciated over 60% in the last 10 years. In fact, several of Houston's most expensive neighborhoods are located in the Memorial area. New development and local growth continue to push home prices steadily upward in many parts of Memorial.
There’s no need to trek into the Inner Loop for a little retail therapy or a memorable evening out. Memorial residents can make the short drive Memorial City Mall, the 37-acre CityCentre, or Town & Country Village for first-rate shops, restaurants, and entertainment options. Two of the city's largest parks, Terry Hershey Park and Memorial Park, provide residents with ample options for outdoor recreation.
Situated just west of Greater Houston, residents don’t have to choose between the area’s roomy lots or a manageable commute into the city’s heart. Here they enjoy both. Memorial residents enjoy easy access to schools, shops, restaurants, entertainment centers, and parks.
Many neighborhoods in Memorial are zoned to some of the top-ranked schools in Texas, including several that have been named a National Blue Ribbon School. There are quality options at the elementary, middle and high school levels, and many of Houston’s notable private schools are also within Memorial.
