History of Norhill

Norhill features many Historic Landmarks such as this original style street marker.

The name Norhill comes from the geographical location of the neighborhood “north” and “higher in elevation” than the Houston Business District of the 1920’s after the 1st World War. William C Hogg was Chairman of the City Planning Commission and played a major role in the creation of the neighborhood.
