Early in its history, Bunker Hill Village consisted of a settlement of German farmers who, attracted by its verdant forest of pines and hardwoods, established sawmills to cut timber. In fact, County highway maps as late as 1936 still showed the existence of several sawmills.

Almost two decades later, as the community evolved, residents concerned that the area's quiet, wooded environment might fall victim to overdevelopment and annexation as Houston's growth drew ever nearer, voted to incorporate their village in December 1954 to ensure that its charm and country-estate atmosphere could be preserved for future generations.

They adopted a mayor-council form of city government and established ordinances and zoning regulations to prohibit businesses. Only single-family homes are permitted in Bunker Hill Village with a minimum lot size of 10,000 square feet in District B and 20,000 square feet in District A. As of the 2000 census, the population was 3,654 with approximately 1,307 homes.

Residents in Bunker Hill Village benefit not only from their own elected mayor-council system, zoning ordinances and tax rate, but also from the excellent Memorial Villages Police Department and equally regarded Village Fire Department. In addition, Bunker Hill has its own water authority.

Children in Bunker Hill Village attend schools in the Spring Branch Independent School District, one of the most highly rated districts in the state. In fact, several of its schools have received National Exemplary School recognition.

With a total land area of just over 1.5 miles, the village is bounded on the east at Blalock Road by Piney Point Village, on the north by Hedwig Village and Memorial Woods, on the west by Memorial Forest and Frostwood, and on the south by Lakeview and Whispering Oaks.

The Village is quiet, yet just moments away from the bustling Memorial City Mall and Houston's main east-west corridor, the Katy Freeway (Interstate 10). Located in a truly unique area, as Houston continues to grow, the environment in Bunker Hill and the other Memorial Villages has become even more in demand.

Residents are justly proud of their community and work hard to preserve it. The area's large lots, tranquil setting, strict zoning ordinances, and country origins attract newcomers, as well as long-time Houston residents, in search of space and peaceful surroundings.

A principios de su historia, Bunker Hill Village consistía de una colonia de agricultores alemanes que, atraídos por su frondoso bosque de pinos y otros árboles, establecieron aserraderos para cortar madera. De hecho, mapas de carreteras de condado en fechas cerca del 1936 todavía mostraban la existencia de varios aserraderos.

Casi dos décadas más tarde, a medida que evolucionó la comunidad, los residentes temían que esta zona tranquila podría ser víctima del desarrollo excesivo. Es por esto que votaron para incorporar su aldea en diciembre de 1954 para asegurarse que su encanto se preservaría para generaciones del futuro.

Se ha adoptado un estilo gobierno de la ciudad y estableció las ordenanzas y regulaciones de zonificación para prohibir a las empresas. Solamente se permiten casas con amplios terrenos. En el distrito B, los terrernos son de un mínimo de 10,000 pies cuadrados en el Distrito A un minimo de 20,000 pies cuadrados. En el censo del 2000, la población era de 3,654, con aproximadamente 1,307 viviendas.

Los residentes de Bunker Hill Village no solo se benefician de las ordenanzas y la tasa de impuestos, sinó también del excelente Departamento de Policía y Departamento de Bomberos. Además, Bunker Hill tiene autoridad sobre su propio servicio de agua.

Los niños en Bunker Hill Village asisten a las escuelas dentro del Distrito de Spring Branch (SBISD), unos de los distritos mas recomendados en el estado. De hecho, varias de sus escuelas han sido reconocidas a nivel nacional como instituciones ejemplares.

Con una area total de 1.5 millas, la vecindad esta rodeado por las calles Blalock. Piney Point Village, Hedwig Village, Memorial Woods, Memorial Forrest y Frostwood.

El barrio es tranquilo aunque está a solo minutos de la ruidosa Memorial City Mall y la carretera I-10. Ubicado en una zona verdaderamente única, mientras Houston continua su desarollo, el medio ambiente en Bunker Hill esta aún más a la demanda.

Los residentes están orgullosos de su vecindad y se esmeran para conservarla. Con sus terrenos amplios, ordenanzas de zonificación estrictas, y tranquilidad, esta area atrae a gente de toda clase que busca espacio y un ambiente como ningún otro en la ciudad.
