One of the most popular neighborhoods in all of Houston is Midtown. Midtown was once an area made up almost entirely of Victorian mansions in the 19th century. However, like many other urban areas across our county, Midtown became a shell of its former self in the mid 20th century. A push to move to suburban areas and the undesirability at that time of city dwelling caused a significant decline in the neighborhood of Midtown.
However, at the close of the 20th century the city of Houston reinvested a great deal of money into Midtown and shortly thereafter the results of that investment began to show. Midtown is now one of the most attractive places to call home of anywhere in Houston. New restaurants, shops and businesses of all kinds have been opening in Midtown over the past quarter century.
