This house is one of the most intact Craftsman bungalows in Houston. It is in Houston Heights, the oldest and most important of the “heights” neighborhoods north of Buffalo Bayou. Houston Heights was developed in 1891 by the Omaha and South Texas Land Company as a seventeen-hundred-acre suburban new town. Houston Heights (commonly referred to as “the Heights”) was intended as a working-class town with its own industrial district. It was a highly capitalized, infrastructure-intensive development by Texan real estate standards of the 1890s. The developers installed the first divided boulevard in Houston, Heights Boulevard, which retains the native loblolly pine trees that grew in profusion on the townsite.
