About the town of Spring TX
Spring TX is an unincorporated area located along I-45, about 20 miles north of Houston. Spring is situated mainly in Northwest Harris County but extends into the southwestern part of Montgomery County. It is close enough to Houston to be able to enjoy the amenities but far enough away to still feel like you are in the country. It is also very accessible to the amenities of the Woodlands. There’s not an actual city of Spring TX but that has not stopped the area from having incredible growth.
In 2014 ExxonMobil will open its new Spring Tx campus. The campus is located at Spring Stuebner and I-45. If you look to the west on I-45 as you pass the Spring Stuebner exit you will see the cranes at work. Exxonmobil will be relocating approximately 8000 jobs. With the advent of Exxomobil coming to the area we are also looking for the long awaited Grand Parkway to loop around this northwest area. It is in progress now and is anticipated being finished sometime in 2015.
Spring TX real estate is booming! I use to say that real estate was plentiful but that is no longer the case. We have a lot of people moving in to the Spring area and real estate is not as plentiful as it use to be. I expect this is going to be our reality for the next several years as builders frantically try to keep up with the supply.
With all the is growth new shopping facilities are opening up all over Spring. Wal-mart,Walgreens, Kroger, and many other shopping facilities have been built at the corner of 2920 and Kuykendahl which has made shopping much more accessible for the rural areas of Spring. As you drive north on Kuykendahl from FM2920 you will see a CVS that just recently opened and a large Kroger that is in the process of being completed.
The area has many fine golf course communities. Northampton, Gleannloch Farms, Windrose, and Augusta Pines are all golf course communities in the Spring area.

History of the Spring area
The area was settled by German immigrants in 1840. The Wunsche family settled in the area and began farming the land. The area had a tremendous growth after the railroad was built through the town in 1871. The town served as a railroad center in the early 1900′s. A roundhouse was built and it was a major switchyard. The roundhouse was moved to Houston in 1923 and the Spring TX population began to decline. In the 1970′s the Houston suburbs started expanding to the north. At that time some of the old houses in Spring were restored and became stores. The Old Town Spring Association was formed to promote this unique village. Old Town Spring has become a tourist attraction with all kinds of unique specialty stores.
Many locals remember that one of the three Goodyear blimps, the airship America was based in Spring TX from 1969 to 1992. It was designed and built by Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company of Akron Ohio.
