Bunker Hill Village is one of the very prestigious, sought-after Memorial Villages. The city is well known for its heavily wooded environment, slowly winding roads and country-like feel, all still while being located minutes from important centers for employment and entertainment.
In 2008, Forbes listed Bunker Hill Village as one of three Houston Suburbs to Live Well (Click here to learn more ). That means that in a city full of great places to call home, Bunker Hill Village is one of the best.
The area now known as Bunker Hill Village was originally settled by German farmers who built sawmills and used the area’s dense woods as their livelihood. The city incorporated in December 1954, and by 1966, had become well known as an affluent Houston suburb. It has retained this prestige to this day.
As of 2010, the population of Bunker Hill Village was just over 3,600 residents, and remains a small, tight-knit community. Today, 30% of residents are under the age of 18, which makes Bunker Hill truly a family community.
Like the other Memorial Villages, the city has no post office of its own, meaning all mailing addresses are listed as “Houston”. It is served by the Memorial Park Post Office, located at 10505 Town and Country Way.
Police protection is shared with the other Memorial Villages, with the Memorial Villages Police Department, located close by at 11981 Memorial Drive.

A local publication, the Memorial Examiner, is distributed in the community.
