Woodland Heights Civic Association presents Woodland Heights Home Tour
The historic Woodland Heights neighborhood near downtown Houston will open eight of its historic homes to the public during “Fresh Traditions,” sponsored by the Woodland Heights Civic Association.
The tour will feature five original homes that range in size and style. As a special bonus, the tour will showcase three additional “Teardown Turnaround” homes that are a testament to how a homeowner’s vision and commitment, combined with creative architects and experienced contractors, can rescue even the most neglected house and turn it into a showplace.
The Woodland Heights neighborhood is one of the oldest and most historic in Houston. When platted in 1907 by William A. Wilson, the neighborhood was a 20-minute streetcar ride north of downtown via Houston Ave. Many of the original homes – reflecting architectural styles including the late Queen Anne, Craftsman, Arts & Crafts, Colonial and Greek Revival – have been lovingly restored.
