Meyerland Houston History


Meyerland’s history is writ large upon the community’s name. Three generations of the Meyer family played integral roles in both the development of the neighborhood and its eventual growth.

In the 1890s, Joseph Meyer started buying land southwest of Houston. He accumulated 6,000 acres of former rice fields and the vast acreage was divided up among his sons upon his death. George Meyer decided to develop his 1,200 acres share of the estate, the area now known as Meyerland.

One of Houston’s first master-planned neighborhoods, Meyerland’s development was done in stages, with each section assigned a number and a set of deed restrictions.

The neighborhood’s history is also apparent in its homes, specifically their architectural style. Traditional and ranch-style homes are common throughout Meyerland, though a specific style from the 50s – one called Mid-Century Modern – gives the area a distinct flavor.

Many still seek out that specific look, and though some of Meyerland’s homes have been updated, owners tend to renovate in keeping with the style.
