Lazybrook Houston History
Taking its name from the White Oak Bayou, Lazybrook is one of Houston’s late bloomers. Lazybrook remained undeveloped and covered in trees between the early 1940s and the 1950s.
During the early 1940s and 1950s, Lazybrook remained largely wooded and undeveloped. The development of the top Houston freeways spurred the neighborhood’s suburban growth.

Eureka Yard (a nearby railroad yard) and St. John’s German Lutheran Church (one of the first churches built in Houston) serve as a reminder of these years. Both landmarks remain standing today.
Lazybrook underwent top residential and urban development in the 1960s and 1970s. About 20-30 years ago, many young professionals started to buy ranch-style homes in the area. Some built newer, more modern properties, while others opted to renovate them.
