Cottage Grove Houston Neighborhood Guide
Cottage Grove, named for its collection of vintage cottages, was originally an independent city. Now a growing Houston neighborhood, Cottage Grove straddles the I-10 and is a stone’s throw away from Loop 610.
Easily one of Houston’s most accessible neighborhoods, Cottage Grove has Timbergrove and Lazybrook to the west and Houston Heights to the north and east.

During the 20s and 30s, Cottage Grove was a stop for the Houston and Texas Central Railway, serving the Eureka Oil Field. Hundreds of cottages were built during this period to house the thousands of workers who moved into the area.
Nowadays, some of those early cottages still stand. Others have been replaced by recently constructed townhomes as well as single-family patio homes.
