Hunters Creek Village

 

Prior to the incorporation of Piney Point Village, German farmers settled the area and opened sawmills. By 1936, the community had a sawmill and several residences.

In the mid 1950’s, effort to form a Spring Branch municipality failed. The city incorporated in 1954 with a mayor-alderman government. Because of the 1954 incorporation, Houston did not incorporate Hunters Creek Village’s territory into its city limits, while Houston annexed surrounding areas that were unincorporated. By 1966, the community had a school and a church. Between 1960 and 1980 the population increased from 2,478 to 4,580. In 1982 the population fell to 4,215. 4,598 people lived in Hunters Creek Village in 1990.

As of 2000, Hunters Creek Village was the 5th wealthiest location in Texas by per capita income. A 2010 BusinessWeek study stated that Hunters Creek Village was the most expensive suburb in Texas.

In 2008, Forbes.com selected Hunters Creek Village, along with the adjacent community of Bunker Hill Village and (southwest suburban) Sugar Land as one of the three Houston-area “Top Suburbs to Live Well”.
