The History of Hilshire Village Real Estate
Frank Bruess and his mother left Missouri and purchased a tract of about 30 acres of land in Texas. He had recently read about a grand manor in Hillshire, England and decided to name the new land after that manor. He changed the spelling slightly, and in the 1950’s Hilshire Village was born. Like the sister villages, Hilshire Village decided to incorporate in the 1950’s to avoid annexation by Houston and protect the feel of the area. Hilshire is the smallest of all the villages boasting less than 1,000 residents. Most of the older ranch style homes have been replaced by larger and grander homes. The homes that remain have been remodeled extensively, though there are a few exceptions. Hilshire is also served by the respected Spring Branch Independent School District.
