16th Annual Eastwood Historic Home Tour
Eastwood is one of Houston’s oldest master-planned subdivisions. It was designed and developed in 1913 by William A. Wilson, who also developed the Woodland Heights. The first lots went on sale in June of 1912, and Eastwood was officially opened in September 1913. The development was planned with paved streets, cement curbs and sidewalks, city water, gas, electricity, telephones and sanitary sewerage as well as terraced lots designed for natural drainage and planned placement of trees.
The homes built in Eastwood were custom homes reflecting the early 20th century fondness for Craftsman, Arts and Crafts, Foursquare and Mission architecture. Today, Eastwood has one of Houston’s largest intact collections of these architectural styles, and the home tour allows guests to experience these styles as they were in that period.
