Southampton Place TX History


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

It was incorporated into the City of Houston the following year, and Southampton deed restrictions were drafted. 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 the neighborhood's deed restrictions. The deed restrictions have been updated through the years. The association has been a big driving force in keeping Southampton a single-family residential area for over 85 years.

The SHCC promotes the preservation of the neighborhood. They have been active in developing Houston ordinances such as off-street parking and permit parking.

They were also instrumental in preserving the beautiful oaks lining the Southampton streets. Back when the new water lines were installed under city streets in 1972.

Southampton is also famous for its heavily-enforced deed restrictions. Alley access at the back of homes helps keep cars and trash off the streets and provides more space in their 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.
