History of Montrose

Established in 1911, Montrose is a demographically diverse area with renovated mansions, bungalows with wide porches and cottages located along tree-lined boulevards. Montrose is one of the more pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods in Houston and is a major cultural hub. It has been called the “Heart of Houston,” the “strangest neighborhood east of the Pecos” and was named one of the “ten great neighborhoods in America.”

Montrose hosts a number of communities including artists, musicians and students from St. Thomas University as well as nearby Rice University. It has thrift, vintage and secondhand shopping stores, bars and restaurants.

Many examples of Houston’s historic residential architecture can be found in the tree-lined streets off Montrose and Westheimer where many century-old bungalows and mansions still stand.
