Brooke Smith is a neighborhood located on the eastern edge of the Houston Heights area right up against I-45. The neighborhood, founded in 1905, has gone through a drastic transformation in recent years. Many of the area’s old Bungalows, Victorian and Folk-Victorian homes are being renovated, remodeled and restored. This is drawing a wide variety of people to the historically blue-collar/working class neighborhood. Artists, architects, young professionals, small families and empty nesters are among those that are moving to Brooke Smith at a steadily increasing rate.
