Noted for its beauty and grace, Boulevard Oaks is one of Houston's premier inner city neighborhoods. With old mansions, bungalows, and even a few post World War II ranch-style homes, all is shaded in century-old oaks that line every street. Boulevard Oaks is a group of 21 subdivisions inside the 610 Loop and north of Rice University. Developed primarily during the 1920s and 1930s, Boulevard Oaks contains two National Register historic districts: Broadacres and Boulevard Oaks Historic Districts, and a City of Houston Historic District.
