Avalon Place TX History


Dr. William Thomas Dickey is a Virginia native who relocated to Houston in the 1880s. He bought 460 acres of land and dreamed of subdividing it into a neighborhood he wanted to call College Heights. He did not live long enough and his son, William M. Dickey, strived to make this happen.

He started developing Avalon Place in 1931. High construction costs slowed down the development. As each lot sold, W. M. Dickey paid off the loan and saved money to continue the development of other areas. Eventually, Avalon Additions started development in 1935. Most of the land sold was in 1941. And after World War II, many homes began construction.

In 1979, they established Avalon Property Owners Association. They supervise the deed and structural restrictions to preserve the traditional beauty of the neighborhood.

Today, Avalon Place is one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Houston. They updated and maintained luxury homes. Thanks to its active property owners association, much of its old-time charm has been preserved.
