Your super neighborhood at-a-glance:

Memorial is one of Houston's most prestigious neighborhoods. Situated between Buffalo Bayou and I-10, west of several incorporated villages, the community takes its name from the main thoroughfare, Memorial Drive. The first significant residential development in this area began in the 1950s. Above-average income homebuyers were attracted to this heavily wooded area and to Spring Branch ISD and Katy ISD schools. Subdivisions range from comfortable mass-produced homes to million dollar estates. Development along I-10 on the northern portion of the area includes important office centers and massive retail districts at Town and Country and Memorial City.
