Eastwood is one of Houston’s first master-planned subdivisions. It was designed and developed in 1913 by William A. Wilson, who also developed Woodland Heights. The first residents were young entrepreneurs in the city, business owners, and managers.
The first lots went on sale in June 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. The lots were terraced and designed for natural drainage, with landscaped esplanades and the planned placement of trees.
By October 1913, Eastwood was hailed by The Houston Daily Post as a “model suburb, one of the most convenient, attractive and beautiful homesite additions in the city of Houston.” The homes built in Eastwood were custom homes reflecting the early 20th century fondness for Craftsman, Arts & Crafts, Foursquare, and Mission architecture. Today, Eastwood has one of Houston’s largest intact collections of these architectural styles.
