In 1838, Spring was a trading post beside Spring Creek. Over time, people moved into the area and began to raise sugar cane and cotton. As the city of Houston grew, the importance of the town of Spring diminished until, in 1980, the Old Town Spring Association began to promote the Old Town Spring Shopping District. In the subsequent decades it has blossomed into a tourist attraction, comprised of historic homes, one-of-a-kind shops and quaint eateries. Indeed, Spring is known throughout Houston for its vibrant Old Town Spring shopping and entertainment district. The new ExxonMobil campus is located right across I-45 from Spring, and this mega-development has had a huge and positive impact on growth in Spring.
With over 55,000 residents, Spring somehow manages to retain its small-town appeal while welcoming newcomers to several growing master-planned communities, with schools, restaurants, entertainment venues and medical facilities all close by. The Spring Independent School District serves the educational needs of area children, and major roadways including I-45 North, TX-99 – the Grand Parkway, the Hardy Toll Road, and Grand Parkway add to Spring’s vitality.
Spring also provides a respite from the hectic urban world. The Spring Creek Greenway will connect up to 10,000 acres of forest along Spring Creek to preserve and restore a biologically diverse ecosystem. Harmony is one such Spring community that embraces the 12,000-acre Spring Creek Greenway as its own backyard. Just minutes from I-45 North and the Hardy Toll Road, this wooded 1,000-acre community offers unique amenities such as Barefoot Park—where residents are encouraged to kickoff their shoes and enjoy the outdoors. The park maintains a resort-style pool with a beach-entry lagoon, a splash pad, and a community pavilion with an outdoor fireplace. Harmony is planned for 2,600 homes, with a variety of award-winning homebuilders and homesites ranging from 55 to 75 feet wide.
Benders Landing, features over 700 home sites in woods settings minutes away from the Hardy Toll Road and I-45, and the Falls at Imperial Oaks offers an active and social and social environment with spacious homesites and new schools right on the edge of the community.
