Hedwig Village

Hedwig Village is one of the six communities in Memorial Villages, or what the locals call “The Villages.” Hedwig Village — along with its neighbors Piney Point Village, Bunker Hill Village, Hilshire Village, Spring Valley Village, and Hunters Creek Village — avoided being annexed by the ever-expanding city of Houston by each incorporating as its own municipality in the 1950s. Today, Memorial Villages is a highly sought-after residential area of Greater Houston, thanks to its collection of splendid houses on large, forested lots, all located conveniently close to the Inner Loop. Memorial Villages is next to Memorial Park, one of the country’s largest parks, covering almost 1,500 acres. An amazing resource for the neighborhood, Memorial Park is home to the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center, with plenty of trails for hiking and cycling. There are also sports courts and a food truck court, boasting some of the hottest food trucks in town.

Living in Greater Houston

Like all of Texas, Greater Houston’s history is the story of oil, with suburban towns developed by and for gas and oil executives, with Houston’s Energy Corridor remaining a major employer today. The suburbs of Houston stretch in all directions, from Kingwood, technically inside the city limits, all the way up to and beyond The Woodlands, whose growth and prominence has earned it its own identity, separate from H-Town. These suburbs are young metropolises — towns that grew out of farmland and forest in the past 50 years, with houses, office parks, newly created lakes, and golf courses emerging from rural lands where only cows and feral pigs once roamed. As Houston’s economy has diversified and as the region has created more new jobs, Houston residents have looked farther and farther out for more space to settle. Greater Houston is booming and there’s no better place to call home.
