While the name "Spring" is commonly applied to northern Harris County and southern Montgomery County, the original town of Spring is what is now known as Old Town Spring. Old Town Spring today is one of Spring's largest tourist attractions with stunning architecture, shopping and retail, and popular local events. There are many outdoor activity options as the Spring Creek Greenway provides hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails both in and around the town, and the city has lovely weather for much of the year!
Superior education, rich history, and thriving outdoor recreation!

Spring, TX History
In 1840, the town of Spring had only 150 residents, while today it has over 50,000 residents. Its booming growth began when the Great Northern Railroad was built through the town, connecting Spring to Fort Worth and the rest of the United States. The Spring State Bank opened in 1912, but part of the town's claim to fame is that it was robbed many times - and legend says maybe even by Bonnie and Clyde! This led to a decline in the town’s residents, but it has since grown into a large, beautiful, safe city that families love.
