Welcome To Memorial
When a Houstonian says, “Memorial,” he or she is referring to the vast area that stretches west from Loop-610, south of Interstate 10 and north of Buffalo Bayou, along Memorial Drive all the way to Beltway 8. Characterized by a country-inthe-city atmosphere undisturbed by commercial development, Memorial neighborhoods offer large wooded lots, winding streets, narrow lanes, some of the most exclusive – and expensive – residences in Houston, and award-winning Spring Branch Independent School District schools.
Just west of Loop 610, Bayou Woods, Sherwood Forest, and Pinewood Estates are vintage subdivisions carved from several families’ country estates soon after World War II when Houston began to reach west. These neighborhoods contain vintage and more recent homes, many on acreage lots. Stablewood, a recent addition from the 1990s, offers luxury homes within a gated community that backs to The Houstonian Estates condominium residences and Houstonian Hotel, Club and Spa.
Further west, the Memorial Villages offer a unique opportunity to live in an independent municipality surrounded by all that Houston has to offer. Created in the 1950s, Hunters Creek, Piney Point, Hedwig, Bunker Hill, Spring Valley, and Hilshire villages have their own governments, police and fire departments, and water systems.* Piney Point Village has one of the highest per capita income levels in the United States.
Beyond the Villages, Sandlewood offers a resort atmosphere with vintage and more recent homes surrounding three lakes used for boating, swimming and fishing. Additional neighborhoods stretching to Beltway 8 include Memorial Forest, Whispering Oaks, Frostwood, Tealwood, Fonn Villas, and Memorial Pines.
Upscale commercial and retail establishments cluster along Beltway 8 and provide Memorial residents with access to some of the finest shopping, dining, hospital and office spaces in Houston, including CityCentre and Memorial City Mall.
*Spring Valley and Hilshire are located north of Interstate10.
