SPRING VALLEY, TEXAS (Harris County). Spring Valley, an incorporated residential community, is located north of Interstate Highway 10 and U.S. Highway 90 and south of the site of former Spring Branch at the edge of the Houston area in west central Harris County. In 1905 the local white school had forty-nine pupils and one teacher, and the local black school twenty students and one teacher.
