History

The Spring Branch Memorial area was originally settled by German immigrants in the 19th century. Hedwig Village's name originates from Hedwig Road, which was built on the property of Hedwig Jankowski Schroeder; Schroeder and her husband immigrated from Germany to Texas in 1906 so they could farm.[5]

In the mid 1950s, effort to form a Spring Branch municipality failed.[6] Hedwig Village was incorporated in December 23, 1954 and established a zoning ordinance in 1955.
