Jersey Village History

The history of Jersey Village dates back to 1953 when Clark W. Henry gave the land which he used to rear Jersey cattle, to be used for the development and building of a residential community. In 1954, the development was initiated by LeRoy and Henry Kennedy, who belonged to the Garden Oaks Baptist Church. Water services, gas, drainage, streets, and sewages were brought to the community. Many houses were constructed along Jersey Drive. A park, school, and golf course were also developed. Jersey Village was finally incorporated in April, 1956.
