Shadow Lawn is one of the smallest historic districts in the Houston area. It is, in fact, one street, a circle comprising only fourteen houses, adjacent to Bissonnet. Built in the early 1920s by some of Houston’s best architects, Shadow Lawn is home to an array of architectural styles.
Situated just north of Rice University and only steps from the Museum District, Shadow Lawn is right in the heart of Houston’s cultural scene. It’s also just blocks from Montrose, one of 2009’s “10 Greatest Places in America” .
This is one of those neighborhoods that’s worth a quick drive around if you’re passing through the Museum District. It won’t take more than a minute, but you’ll see some wonderful houses on your way.
