The wooded terrain and hidden ravines
In the 1940s Mr. Frank Bruess and his mother left Missouri for Texas and purchased 30 acres of land near Houston in his new state. Initially, Frank and Georgia Bruess had intended to name the development ‘Tall Pines’ but adopted the name ‘Hilshire’ with one ‘L’ and Hilshire Manor was the name recorded on all the deeds in the Harris County map records. The smallest of the six incorporated municipalities that make up the Memorial Villages, Hilshire Village was founded in 1955 and is home to a population of about 1,000 (2000 U.S. Census).
