Spring Texas - Real Estate & Information

Spring Texas - Real Estate & Information

Spring, Texas is a unique shopping village located approximately 20 miles north of the bustling city of Houston. Originally established around 1745 as a trading station by the Orcoquisac Indians, Spring got its name from the railroad men who laid the train tracks to Houston in the 1870s. The winter before the men reached the town was a particularly harsh one, and the workers were anxiously awaiting warmer temperatures. As soon as they came upon what later became the Spring region, the seasons changed. In their excitement, the men called the area “Camp Spring.” Later, “Camp” was dropped from the official name, but “Spring” stuck.

Today, more than 250 years after the Orcoquisac Indians established it as a place to buy and sell fish, game, and a variety of goods, Spring remains a thriving center for trade. Though the name now applies to a relatively large geographic area reaching across northern Harris County and into southern Montgomery County, the original town of “Spring” was a fairly small area now referred to as “Old Town Spring.”

The Spring real estate market consists of existing homes for sale and builders are building new homes and neighborhoods to accommodate the arrival of the new Exxon complex, which will bring thousands of new jobs and new neighbors to Spring.  Almost any Spring real estate homes for sale will be within 15 minutes of Exxon.

Shopping and Dining
Well known throughout the region for its annual festivals, historic buildings, and specialty shops, Old Town Spring boasts more than 150 antique stores, boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants, including Amish Barn, Ellen’s Café and Gifts, That Chic Boutique, and The Drunk Artist. Vamp Vintage Wear sells rare couture clothing from the 1950s as well as vintage resale.

For options from fine dining to casual, Spring has something to please the palate. The White Flamingo Restaurant serves up fresh seafood, elegant entrees, and extravagant desserts in an inviting atmosphere with live piano music. Founded in 1902 as a hotel and saloon, the Wunsche Bros. Café is a long-time favorite for classic American cuisine. A number of big-name chain restaurants, such as P.F. Chang’s and The Cheesecake Factory, are located just 15 minutes away in The Woodlands.

Parks and Recreation
Spring’s parks offer residents various ways to relax and rejuvenate outdoors. At 180 acres, Meyer Park has 26 soccer fields, two softball fields, a three-acre fishing lake, a duck pond, a basketball court, two children’s playgrounds, 15 exercise stations, paved walking/jogging trails, and one of the area’s most popular nature trails: Gourley Natural Trail. The half-mile long, asphalt trail connects Meyer Park with Collins Park. In addition to the standard children’s playground and athletic fields, Collins Park features a sand volleyball court, a skate park, a canoe launch, an amphitheater, and a natural-surface off-road bicycling trail.

The heavily wooded Cypresswood Golf Club features 36 holes spread across 800 acres. During the summer months, residents can cool down at SplashTown, Spring’s own waterpark. For enjoyment and cultural enrichment, the Spring Historical Museum and the Civil War Museum are both in Old Town Spring.

Living
Situated in the midst of the East Texas Piney Woods, Spring is a town of tree-lined streets and wooded parks. Famous for its unique shops, the town also hosts five popular festivals each year, including the Texas Crawfish and Music Festival.
