On July 25, 2006, our homeowner association was incorporated as the Oakcrest Communication Association.
According to former Board member Brian Gibson of Lennar Homes: "Oakcrest originally had just the splash pad as its only amenity, and it was developed as Oakcrest. When we purchased the acreage north to Boudreaux Road, we re-marketed all of Oakcrest as Wildwood at Oakcrest. Wildwood at Oakcrest is just a marketing name." So today, we are known as the Wildwood at Oakcrest Community Association or Oakcrest Community Association for short. Having Oakcrest in our name distinguishes us from the Wildwood at Northpointe Community Association.
The clubhouse is on the site that used to be the Martens Family home. There are pictures from that time on a wall inside the clubhouse.
The Martens Family came to Texas in the early 1800s directly from Germany. They traveled by boat into Galveston and settled here in the Cypress area. Great Grandparents, Grandparents, and Parents owned and worked the land until they passed away. They all worked very hard to retain this property, and the land was their livelihood for many years.
At one time, the Martens Family homestead extended from Telge Road to Shaw Road and from Boudreaux Road down to where two of the association amenity detention lakes meet. The Fehrle family was their neighbor to the south. Wilbert and Rosalee Fehrle lived there with their three children: Melvin, Charles, and Jeanette. The original Oakcrest community occupies the Fehrle Family land whereas the expansion of the community to Wildwood at Oakcrest occupies the Martens Family land.
The home was built by the Martens family in the middle of the trees that remain standing behind the clubhouse. Although the home was removed, the acquisition to develop the land included a stipulation that those trees could never be removed.
The park adjacent to the clubhouse honors the original owners/caretakers of the land.
