This historic community has a motto that reads, "Independence Heights: Continuing & Preserving a Quality Heritage for a Quality People." It encompasses the post-World War II neighborhood known as Yale-Victoria and the historically African American area of Independence Heights.

It is bounded by Interstate 45 on the east, Interstate 610 on the south, Tidwell Road on the north, and Yale Street on the west.
Independence Heights’ history dates back to 1908 when African American families began to migrate to Northern Houston and the Wrightland Company started constructing small wood-frame residences for sale. The Independence Heights School was established in 1911 and by 1915 the community had grown to almost six hundred residents and was incorporated as the City of Independence Heights. In 1929 the city dissolved and was annexed by Houston later in the same year. Today Independence Heights encompasses many appealing amenities that include Independence Heights Park, Kerr Park, McCullough Park, Independence Heights Empowerment Center, and William Bowie Activity Center.
