The Museum District and the Medical Center area are south of the neighborhood, just across the Southwest Freeway (US 59).
One of Houston’s oldest and most historic neighborhoods, the area upon which Hyde Park now sits was previously the property of Mirabeau B. Lamar, the second President of the Republic of Texas. The neighborhood was officially established in 1893, and was annexed into Houston between 1905 and 1906.
Years later, Houston Land Corporation executive J. W. Link bought and developed the 250-acre parcel now known as Montrose.
Today, Hyde Park has an active civic association with some deed-restricted areas.
