River Oaks

77019 Est. 1920s

River Oaks subdivision is located inside the 610 Loop, halfway between downtown and uptown and to the south of Upper Kirby and west of Montrose. It is bordered by Buffalo Bayou to north, Westheimer to the South, Shepherd Drive to the east and East Briar Hollow Lane (Union Pacific Railroad track) to the west. Home to many CEOs, board directors, and wealthy entrepreneurs, River Oaks has earned the reputation of being one of Houston's and the Southwest's most exclusive neighborhoods.

In the early 1920s, River Oaks subdivision was developed by Mike and Will Hogg, sons of a former governor of Texas, and their associate, Hugh Potter. Their company, the River Oaks Corporation, started with an option to purchase 200 acres of land four miles west of Houston on the south bank of Buffalo Bayou, surrounding the already flourishing River Oaks Country Club.

To say that the Hoggs were undertaking a highly speculative venture is an understatement. Houstonians regarded Country Club Estates, accessible only by a dirt road, as the hinterlands; sales were less than brisk. The Hogg brothers and their partner Mr. Potter, leaned heavily on the allure of the country club’s golf course to stimulate sales, and reduced lot sizes from their original range of 3.5- to 14.25-acres to smaller parcels. The strategy worked, and River Oaks Country Club Estates began to sell. The Hogg’s retained Kansas City landscape architects Hare and Hare to provide a master plan for the new subdivision, which included home sites, a fifteen-acre campus for River Oaks Elementary School, two shopping centers, esplanades, and underground utility lines.

Rigid building codes, deed restrictions and centralized community control assured exclusivity, and approval of house designs by an architectural panel was required. River Oaks became famous for impressive homes designed by the country’s foremost residential architects, including John Staub, Birdsall P. Briscoe, Hiram Salisbury, and Howard Barnstone. Its most famous house, Bayou Bend, was a collaborative design by Staub and Briscoe for the Hogg’s’ sister, Ima, an early and exuberant collector of American antiques. Her home is now administered by the Museum of Fine Arts Houston and houses the Bayou Bend Collection, a premier resource for American decorative arts. A later Staub house, Rienzi, built for the late Harris and Carroll Masterson, is also administered by the MFAH and houses the Mastersons’ European decorative art collection.

Ross, is an 18-hole course that opened in 1922.  The Hogg brothers and their partner, Mr. Potter, would be pleased to know that their high-risk location was, by the mid 1990s, turned out to be the geographic center of Houston and a famous Texas landmark.
