The richest city in Texas has been revealed — and its identity will shock many. For it isn’t one of the storied, old-money enclaves of Houston or Dallas. Neither River Oaks nor Preston Hollow topped the rankings. Instead, it’s more of a new-money town — one as well-known for its elementary school as anything else.
It is West University Place’s time — and everyone else had better get out of the way of the Little League-loving, mighty-checkbook moms running the place. West U, as it’s more commonly known, is now the Richest Town in Texas, according to an exhaustive analysis from 24/7 Wall Street, a respected finance site. West U’s median household income clocks in at $207,429.
