Glen Cove TX History

Developers established the neighborhood in the 1940s. It was on a land that was once part of Camp Logan. The Hogg family purchased most of the site after the camp closed down.

Following the Hogg family’s focus on developing River Oaks, the northern portion was donated to Houston and became Memorial Park.

The third section of the neighborhood stands on a parcel of land originally part of the Bringhurst subdivision. Joseph Alleine Brown from the William M. Rice Institute purchased the area in 1946.

Development continued until they finished the whole neighborhood by the 1960s. Like most Houston neighborhoods, Glen Cove has seen a trend of replacing the original single-story bungalows with large 2-story homes.

The Crestwood-Glen Cove Architectural Committee regulates construction in the area. The Committee ensures that home designs are in harmony with existing structures.

Glen Cove is part of Houston’s Super Neighborhood 22, with other neighborhoods in the Washington and Memorial area. This group received recognition from the City of Houston in 2000 and contains many historic sites.
