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.

A tony cocoon of natural and man-made splendors.

Urban development now surrounds the Memorial Villages, much to the pleasure of its inhabitants who still enjoy its small forested areas but also take advantage of the high-end shops and critics-pick restaurants that occupy the neighborhood’s three major mixed-use meccas: CityCentre, the Memorial City Mall, and Town & Country Village.

Comfortable country living with big-city benefits.

If you’re looking to settle just outside Houston’s core, you likely want it all: the peace and quiet and privacy of an out-of-the-way neighborhood and the vibrancy and conveniences of a metropolis. The good news is, in the Memorial Villages you won’t have to compromise.
