Arlington Terrace Houston History

The Memorial Park area was once a WWI-era army training camp. In 1924, the Hogg brothers acquired 1,503 acres of the former boot camp, intending to develop a residential neighborhood in the area.

Neighborhoods grew around the park, including Crestwood, Glen Cove, Camp Logan, Arlington Terrace, and Rice Military. Homes in the upscale gated subdivision were built between the early 1990s to the mid-2000s.

Today, Arlington Court boasts of luxury homes lined along its tree-lined winding streets.
