Southside Place is a city within the City of Houston and is adjacent to the cities of West University Place and Bellaire. Despite once being the site of the Harris County Poor Farm, Forbes regularly ranks Southside Place as one of the wealthiest areas in Houston. The small community (just ten blocks), was founded by Edlo L. Crain, and opened on Easter Day 1925. Southside Place is governed by a mayor and five council members. It is home to the mid-century modern Braes Heights Shopping Center. There are an abundance of parks, pools and gardens contributing to a family and pedestrian-friendly area.
