Woodland Heights TX History

Woodland Heights is one of Houston’s most historic and oldest neighborhoods. It was platted in 1907, some years after its older neighbor, Houston Heights.

The William Wilson Realty Company spearheaded the 106-acre development, drawn to the area’s proximity to downtown. The neighborhood was one of Houston’s original streetcar suburbs.

Special care was taken to provide the basics for each home. The developer set aside spaces for sidewalks, green spaces, and schools. The William B. Travis Elementary School, formerly called Beauchamp Springs Public School, dates back to the neighborhood’s early years.

The Woodland Heights neighborhood has 61 developments/subdivisions with some 2,000 homes. Most of its subdivisions are deed-restricted, preserving the area’s old-world charm.

Fun Things To Do Near Woodland Heights

Though largely residential, Woodland Heights has some commercial areas for dining, retail, and entertainment within its borders. Major cultural, entertainment, and retail centers in Rice Military, the Heights, and Downtown are also within minutes of the neighborhood.

Several parks line the neighborhood’s southern borders: Woodland Park, White Oak Park, and Stude Park.

Opened in 1903, Woodland Park predates the neighborhood. As the name suggests, the park is wooded. It is home to various bird species and features walking trails, picnic areas, and playgrounds. The park also has a community center, an indoor gymnasium, a lighted sports field and tennis court, and an outdoor basketball court.
