Courtlandt Place TX History
Located in what was once the outskirts of Houston, Courtlandt Place was built as a residential enclave for the then-fledgling city’s elite. The historic neighborhood was platted in 1906, a few years after Westmoreland Place (1902). Both were exclusive communities that at the time were called “Private Places”, built in response to Houston’s urban chaos.
The first 14 Courtlandt Place homes were built before WWI. Four more were added to the community by 1937. Distinguished architects and developers built homes in the area like Warren and Wetmore, John F. Staub, Sanguinet and Staats, and Birdsall P. Briscoe.
Today, Courtlandt Place is a historic district. In 1979, the community was inducted into the National Register of Historic Places. Ten years later, Courtlandt Place received a Texas historical marker.
