Welcome to the Old Braeswood POA
The Braeswood Civic Club was first established in 1939 to enforce the deed restrictions for the Braeswood Addition as well as to improve and beautify the area for the enjoyment of area residents. In 1982, “Old Braeswood” was registered as a trademark and logo to differentiate our residential neighborhood from the surrounding areas along Braes Bayou, which had become known as “Braeswood”.
Old Braeswood sections and blocks
The current area served by the Old Braeswood POA consists of 314 private residences; Braeswood Park, property of the City of Houston Parks and Recreation Department; and two traffic triangles owned by the City Traffic and Transportation Department.
Old Braeswood is a unique residential neighborhood characterized by large lots and sweeping lawns, huge trees, and a distinct architectural diversity that ranges from stately Tutor homes to architecturally significant Ranches.
The Old Braeswood POA has been active during recent years to assure that the unique character of our neighborhood continues. For this reason, the Old Braeswood POA discourages the subdividing of large, multi-lot properties into component lots that results in a dense concentration of construction with only minimum free space. Area development that retains the integrity of the neighborhood will always be encouraged.
