The Heights Movers

The charming, historic Heights sits right outside of Downtown Houston. Founded in the 1880s as a streetcar suburb, the Heights was annexed into the city in 1919. The Heights became a place of industry after World War II, and its population declined. Since the 90s young professionals and artists have revived the area, bringing upscale homes amid the historic homes for which the area is known. CNN Money ranked the Heights as the 4th of the Top Ten Big City Neighborhoods. Many of the houses in the Heights are historic, donning the architectural styles of Queen Anne, Craftsman, and Victorian. Two homes, designed by George Barber, are still standing, right on Harvard and Heights Blvd.

The Houston Independent School District (HISD) serves the families of the Heights. The community has elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools, and there are also two charter schools and three private schools.

Known as the most walkable neighborhoods in Houston, residents enjoy hopping from shop to shop on foot or traversing the Heights Hike and Bike Trail. The Heights boasts excellent shopping with antique, home décor, vintage clothing, and art shops. The Heights Mercantile opened in 2021 as a market district near Donovan Park. Charming architecture, unique shopping opportunities, and more sit along the Heights Bike Trail. Residents enjoy the First Saturday Arts Market with live music, crafts, and more.
