Braeswood Place Houston History

Chartered in 1951, Braeswood Place’s development started in the late 40s. Like most Houston neighborhoods during the period, the area was made up of single-family ranch-style homes.

During the 1990s, concerned residents formed the Stella Link Redevelopment Association (SLRA). The group is dedicated to rehabilitating parts of the neighborhood. The efforts of the association led to the creation of the Stella Link Park community service corridor. The program is also thanks to the help from the city and private parties.

The large 4-block area is now home to two area schools (Pershing Middle School and Mark Twain Elementary School), the McGovern-Stella Link Library, the Weekley Family YMCA, and McGovern Park.

Like most areas in Houston, the early 2000s marked a trend in tearing down old Braeswood Place homes. Bigger, custom-built houses replaced the old properties. Some of the neighborhood’s original homes from the 1950s, however, have been carefully maintained and updated.

The Weekley Family YMCA, which houses several indoor and outdoor activity facilities, is also within a stone’s throw away of Braeswood homes.
