Spring Branch

8511SPRIcvr.indd

When someone thinks of the Spring Branch area of Houston, chances are that a multicultural, highly populated residential area on the west side of the city comes to mind. Yet photographs of Spring Branch’s early history are very different from the urban images of today. In the 1840s, German immigrants settled at an area near a tributary of Buffalo Bayou that was then outside the Houston city limits. These immigrants, who were farmers, business owners, and shopkeepers, came to America to embrace and fulfill their dreams—living a life of freedom, owning property, and raising their families. They were prepared to earn their success without slave labor available during that era, and they worked together to build a well-known residential area of present-day Houston.

To compile this fascinating history, long-time Spring Branch resident George Slaughter interviewed descendants of original settlers and culled historic, previously unpublished photographs from private collections.
