Uptown’s remarkable history began in the early 1800’s when Texas was a part of Mexico. Stephen F. Austin’s Original 300 Colonists traveled the old San Felipe Trail through what is now the heart of Uptown. This rural flatland was home to early estates and Italian immigrant families growing vegetables along Post Oak Boulevard. Following WWII, visionaries, such as William Farrington, Gerald D. Hines and Giorgio Borlenghi, began the modern transformation of Uptown into an urban community of uncommon beauty and gracious character.
