Tanglewood, located in the heart of Houston, Texas, was developed in the late 1940s by the Tanglewood Corporation led by William G. Farrington. The neighborhood was designed with the charm of a wooded area, which influenced its name—inspired by Tanglewood Tales by Nathaniel Hawthorne. Originally envisioned as a suburban retreat for affluent families, Tanglewood has retained much of its exclusive and tranquil charm.
Over the decades, it has attracted Houston's elite, contributing to its reputation as one of the most prestigious areas in the city. The neighborhood gained further distinction when George H. W. Bush, the 41st President of the United States, chose it as his residence. Tanglewood’s development over the years mirrors the growth and changes in Houston, particularly reflecting the city's evolution into a vibrant economic and cultural hub.
