Cottage Grove was originally an independent city, located at Houston and Texas Central’s Eureka Junction rail stop. Vintage cottages, new homes, town homes, small apartment complexes, and small businesses are present along the narrow streets where yellow-crowned night herons fish crawdads from storm water swales after rainfalls. The banks of White Oak Bayou and a tree-shaded neighborhood park are popular recreation spots in the neighborhood. Robert Louis Stevenson Elementary School, located at the historic center of Cottage Grove, earns an academically-recognized status in the Houston Independent School District. Memorial and 11th Street parks, shops, and family style and fine dining restaurants are close by. METRO’s route 48 traverses part of the neighborhood.Likewise, other bus routes also have stops along Shepherd and Washington Avenue, creating convenient commutes for its inhabitants.
Independence Heights is a historic neighborhood located in northwest Houston. Known as the first city incorporated by African Americans, the community is home to more than 14,000 people. Over the last year, residents, former residents, business owners, church leaders, parents, educators, community leaders, and community partners have come together to imagine and envision a new future for this historic community. Through a series of community meetings, stakeholders came together to create a shared vision for the community called the “Quality of Life Agreement”. In essence, the people of this area have united in efforts to enhance the general sense of quality in their lives and in the lives of all of their neighbors.
Known as one of Houston’s “Super Neighborhoods”, this treasure is hidden in plain view. Boasting of its hospitable and truly Southern nature, Acres Homes epitomizes “country living” in the heart of our nation’s 4th largest metropolitan city. For those who have an appreciation for a closely-knitted and syrupy-sweet rapport with their immediate neighbors, this is a place that they will likely adore. In this neighborhood, each of its streets is adorned with a collection of homes bearing assorted styles, including traditional bungalows, country cottages, modern brick homes, and more. That said, individual personality is not only encouraged, it’s required.
Although it was once a primarily African-American community, Acres Homes is now a melting pot of creed and culture where the residents are waiting to welcome you, your family, and your sense of style. It’s a place where you can feel the warmth and comfort of “home; sweet home”.
