Developed in 1890, Oscar Martin Carter chose the Houston Heights to create his vision for a planned community where successful entrepreneurs and working people alike could live and work, in health and safety, as neighbors. Carter included a commercial strip at 19th and Ashland Streets and arranged for stores to open there to serve new residents. Today 19th Street is a thriving Houston jewel offering a curation of locally owned storefronts that is the coolest shopping block in the City!
