The Spring Branch area is located north of I-10, south of Clay Road and generally between 610 and Kirkwood (west of Beltway 8)

Spring Branch began as a religious community settled by German farmers. Karl Kolbe came from Germany in 1830 and was the earliest settler in Spring Branch.

In 1848, St. Peters Church was organized by families in the area and the church was built with lumber set aside from a local sawmill on a site donated by the Bauer family, who owned the mill. The church is located on Long Point just east of Campbell Road. The cemetery behind the church holds the remains of a number of the first pioneers.

In 1854, the minister of St. Peters conducted the first school in the log cabin church. The Spring Branch school district began with the Spring Branch School Society sponsored by St. Peter's Church in 1856. The first public school was opened in 1889.

Many of the streets in the Spring Branch area bear the names of the early settlers. The first post office was owned by the Hillendahl family, as well as the railroad stop and last active Spring Branch farm.
