Southampton TX History


E.H. Fleming developed Southampton Place in 1922 as a residential and business community.

It was incorporated into the City of Houston the following year. Southampton deed restrictions were drafted as well. One of its rules stated that there were to be no apartment houses or duplexes built within the neighborhood.

In 1929, the Southampton Civic Club (SHCC) was established to preserve and protect the deed restrictions of the neighborhood. It updated the deed restrictions through the years. The HOA is a big factor in keeping Southampton a single-family residential area for over 85 years.

The SHCC promotes the preservation of the neighborhood. It has been active in the development of Houston parking ordinances.

They played a role in preserving the beautiful oaks lining Southampton streets when the new water lines were installed in 1972.

Southampton is also famous for its enforced deed restrictions. Alley access at the back of homes helps keep cars and trash off the streets. Due to this, it provides more space in the front yards.

Southampton is part of the University Place Association. It is an organization of area neighborhoods, businesses, and institutions that aim to promote civic goals.
