The Houston Heights' history began at the end of the 19th century. When Houston Heights was founded in 1891, it was a street-car suburb of Houston. It had its own local government until the City of Houston annexed the neighborhood in 1919.
The Heights have an enforced deed restriction to keep the neighborhood's character and charm. That historic influence gives the exciting community of Houston Heights many advantages over other neighborhoods in town. Known for its architectural distinction, small-town character, and proximity to Downtown Houston, The Houston Heights is an enchanting step back into yester-years.
The Heights is very much like a small town in the middle of a big city. Heights Boulevard, the main artery through the area, serves as a living photograph of "how it used to be," featuring turn-of-the-century homes and privately maintained parks. From the Woodland Heights on the Southeast side of the Heights, you can see the downtown skyline from many of the area's 2nd stories.
Other outstanding features of the Houston Heights include the Heights Playground, completely designed, funded, and constructed by the people of the community; its unique 19th street historic business district; educational opportunities that include preschool, parochial schools as well as outstanding public schools; a variety of annual events, such as the Heights Garage Sale, Historic Heights Home and Garden Tour, Heights Fun Run, Heights Festival, and Christmas in the Heights; and warm friendly people who keep that small-town feeling alive. The Heights is a truly a unique old neighborhood that is now a wonderful place to call home in the heart of the city.
