Crestwood TX History

City view

The neighborhood developed in the 1940s in an area part of Camp Logan. After the camp closed, the Hogg family purchased most of the site.

Following the Hogg family's focus on developing River Oaks, the city of Houston received the northern area as a donation.

Development continued until the 1960s. Crestwood/Glen Cove has also seen a trend of replacing bungalows with large 2-story homes.

To ensure the homes' harmony with existing structures, a committee regulates it. The Crestwood-Glen Cove Architectural Committee controls construction in the area.

Crestwood/Glen Cove is part of Houston's Super Neighborhood 22. Along with it are other neighborhoods in the Washington and Memorial area. It became recognized by the City of Houston in 2000 and is home to many historical sites.
