COMMUNITY DESCRIPTION AND HISTORY: The northern part of the community is home to several major chemical plants. The southern corner, which was once an oilfield, is now an industrial area. Several wooded neighborhoods with single-family homes are nestled in between. The oldest areas, Meadowbrook and Allendale, were built before World War II. After the war, Forest Oaks and Oak Meadows were built for Houston’s growing population of middle-income citizens. The newest addition to the area, Meadowcreek Village, contains the largest homes in the community.
