Preservation Houston Walking Tour: Courtlandt Place

Photo by Jim Parsons

Explore one of Houston's most exclusive early 20th-century neighborhoods during Preservation Houston's walking tour of Courtlandt Place, which was designed as an enclave for Houston's elite, and it preserved its historic character even as surrounding neighborhoods changed.

The only remaining gated "private place" neighborhood in the Montrose area, Courtlandt contains homes designed by some of the foremost local and national architects of the early 20th century. Houston architects John F. Staub, Birdsall Briscoe and Alfred C. Finn designed homes in the neighborhood, as did noted Texas firm Sanguinet & Staats and the New York architects Warren & Wetmore, known for their design of Grand Central Terminal.

The tour goes behind Courtlandt Place's gates to discuss the history of the neighborhood, the architecture of its lovely homes and the fascinating stories of the people who built them.

Please note that this tour will not visit the interiors of any homes. Advance ticket purchase required.
