Southside Circle TX History

Southside Place was the brainchild of developer Edlo L. Crain. The small community broke ground in 1925. Soon thereafter, bungalows, a swimming pool, and a park adorned the community’s streets. Crain added Chinese Tallow trees and Radiant Red rose bushes to enhance the development’s overall look.

Concrete curbs, sidewalks, and gravel streets – then modern advances – were also added to the community’s layout.

Like West University Place, Southside Place eventually incorporated in 1934. The city has a council-manager form of government.

The area where Southside Circle now sits used to be part of Shell Oil’s Bellaire Research Center. Development started sometime in 2013, and today is one of the most luxurious gated communities within the Inner Loop.
