The Avondale neighborhood is an architecturally and historically significant example of an early 20th century affluent Houston community. Avondale was home to many of Houston’s early business and social leaders more than a decade before the development of River Oaks and Broadacres, Houston’s later exclusive neighborhoods.
With the downtown Houston skyline as a picturesque background, Avondale is the heart of Montrose. Situated on the thoroughfares of Montrose Boulevard and Westheimer Road, one can find an abundance of shops, boutiques and restaurants.
