Woodland Heights Houston History

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

Today, 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.
