We work in collaboration with local business owners, the Heights Chamber of Commerce, the Houston Heights Association, 19th Street Merchants, and more to ensure you are getting the most recent and most accurate Heights news. Curated by Circa Real Estate, we have a true pulse on the Heights community.

We give you a front seat to the action on 19th Street, partnering with local breweries and artists each month to help you connect to your community.
The Heights is a historic neighborhood in Houston that dates back to the 1800s. By the time it was founded in the late 1800s, it had its own city hall, jail, and hospital. The name comes from its elevation, as the Heights was known for being at the highest point in Houston. That means fewer mosquitos and—well, that’s really enough to sell the real estate, alone.
The community was (and still is today) a dry zone, so no alcohol could be purchased in its neighborhoods. Development turned to residential homes and local businesses, with many clustered on 19th Street (and still is today).
From Victorian mansions on Heights Boulevard, to quirky art statues on the walking trails, to the diverse shopping and entertainment on 19th Street, there is always something fun to do in the Heights. Find out where to buy the newest records, where to go to see great art installments, which farmer’s and arts markets you can’t miss, and how to find the best local coffee, all here on The Heights Blog.
