While the name "Spring" is popularly applied to a large area of northern Harris County and a smaller area of southern Montgomery County (approximately 24 square miles), the original town of Spring, now known as Old Town Spring, encompasses a small area less than a square mile. This was the historic location of a 19th century railroad hub. Presently, Old Town Spring is host to over 100 local shopping and dining businesses. An antiquer’s paradise!
