Freeland, only two blocks in size, was platted in 1920, from a portion of the original 1839 homestead of Gabriel Gostick. The developers of Freeland knew that proximity to the flourishing Houston Heights community would attract buyers to Freeland and could benefit Freeland residents as well. Freeland features an intact concentration of one-story 1920s bungalows, giving this modest neighborhood near Houston Heights an early 20th century ambiance. Freeland Historic District was designated in 2008. For more information about City of Houston historic districts and landmarks, please go to: See more detail.
