About the Neighborhood
In November of 1950, Robert W. Clemens, George Fasullo, and John E. Cashman filed documents with the county clerk's office establishing Meadowcreek Village. Graduates of Rice Institute, these developers saw the potential of the vacant land southeast of Houston, midway between downtown and the recreation areas of Galveston Bay. Time would prove them correct. Many of the initial residents of the neighborhood worked at nearby Ellington Air Force Base and enjoyed the convenience of being close to their work and to downtown shopping and entertainment. The opening of NASA's Manned Spaceflight Center nearby gave even more importance to the area as a prime residential enclave.
More than just a residential subdivision, Meadowcreek Village was one of Houston's first planned communities. Areas for a park, schools, churches, and shopping were all part of the original concept. Because of its many innovations, the neighborhood was featured in several home shows during its early years. It is a testament to the efforts of the developers, the designers, and the builders that the neighborhood has remained a pleasant place to live for more than 50 years - indeed a rarity in the Houston area.
