Brief History

Lawndale/Wayside is a collection of neighborhoods, which still reflect the area’s origins as a prestigious east side neighborhood. At that time, the municipal Wortham Golf Center was the City’s first country club, what is now the Houston Country Club. The adjacent heavily wooded Country Club and Idylwood neighborhoods have remained attractive. The areas of Forest Hill and Mason Park are middle class havens with curving streets and large lots. The presence of wooded preserves such as the large Forest Park Cemetery, Villa De Matel convent, Mason Park and Wortham Golf Center have helped to maintain the area’s beauty. The entire neighborhood is within the Greater East End Management District.
