Hunters Creek Village is one of Houstonʼs ever-popular, highly prestigious Memorial Villages. The city occupies 1.9 square miles located truly in the heart of it all, directly south of I-10, and minutes from the Galleria, Memorial City and the Energy Corridor. But looking around, you canʼt tell! The large homesites and heavily-wooded setting have a character more along the lines of a secluded country village than a coveted enclave in the middle of a bustling city.
In 2008, Hunters Creek Village was listed, along with its neighbor Bunker Hill Village, as one of the top three Houston Suburbs to Live Well.
Prior to its incorporation, the area was settled by German farmers, who established sawmills on the site of Hunters Creek Village and the adjacent villages. The city officially incorporated in 1954, following earlier attempts to establish a larger Spring Branch municipality. Because of this incorporation, Houston was unable to annex the land but did annex adjacent unincorporated land.
As of the 2010 census, the population of Hunters Creek Village was 4,367. This means that despite its location in the middle of it all, Hunters Creek Village continues to maintain the small, tight-knit community feeling that has always made it so popular.
As with all other Memorial Villages, Hunters Creek Village addresses are designated as “Houston, Texas” by the United States Postal Service despite its independent government. The city is served by the nearby Memorial Park Post Office, located at 10505 Town and Country Way.
Hunters Creek Village operates the Memorial Villages Police Department jointly with Piney Point Village and Bunker Hill Village; it is located at 11981 Memorial Drive and is well known for its speedy response times.
