Raintree Place Houston History


Don and Allen Culwell laid out Raintree Place’s townhomes in 1972. It was after he registered the Raintree Place Property Owners Association the year before.

The community was built in the 1990s.

The Culwells and the community’s pioneer homeowners formed Raintree Place’s first architectural committee, which met regularly to approve new townhomes. Thanks to the HOA’s efforts, deed restrictions and regulations were put in place.

The property association is still active today, led by 5 elected officers of the Board of Trustees. The board is responsible for maintaining common areas (including roads, lighting, and landscaping), enforcing deed restrictions, and hiring security.
