COMMUNITY DESCRIPTON AND HISTORY: Although it includes two small areas of single-family homes, large apartment complexes dominate the area’s landscape along with scattered commercial and light industrial uses. Most of Gulfton was originally developed as a rural subdivision called Westmoreland Farms. The large acreage parcels and widely-spaced grid pattern of roads made it possible for very large apartment complexes to be built in the area starting in the 1960s, many of which were restricted to adults. Gulfton is home to many recent immigrants from Mexico and Latin America.
