Montrose

Montrose is one of those up-town streets in Houston that means different things to different people. When I grew up and through college, it was known as the “place” where people of alternate lifestyles lived. While that is still true to a lesser extent today, it is now considered more of a cultural center that showcases museums, musicians, the University of St. Thomas, fine restaurants and much more. While it may still have a strong night life, many examples of Houston’s historic residential architecture in the tree-lined streets with many century-old bungalows and mansions can be found.
