Located in the heart of Houston, Texas, you can find Briarmeadow/Tanglewilde, only 12 miles from Downtown Houston. Technically Briarmeadow is listed as a subdivision of the Tanglewilde neighborhood, with Briarmeadow situated between two major business districts, the Westchase District and the Galleria. Briarmeadow started out as a 258-acre piece of land with 18 acres dedicated for retail and other commercial establishments. In the 1930s, a man named William Giddings Farrington began development of Tanglewood. Farrington named the neighborhood after his daughter's favorite book, Tanglewood Tales by Nathaniel Hawthorne. In the beginning, Farrington was unable to find buyers for his newly constructed homes. Nevertheless, as fate would have it, heavy rains caused flooding in the lower portions of Houston, leading those with flood-damaged houses to find interest in the new neighborhood since Farrington designed the area with high water drainage capabilities. One notable attribute about these two communities is all of the trees growing in the area, with Tanglewilde said to have over 5,000 trees growing within its borders alone.
