Cottage Grove Civic Association
Our History was created by volunteers living in an urban Houston Texas neighborhood called Cottage Grove. The site intends to offer easy access to accurate information regarding the quality of life in our neighborhood.

The historical map of Cottage Grove shows the neighborhood and the railroad before the freeway was constructed. David Hornburg provided the map. He has an avocation for area history and some of his findings are described in the Eureka Memorial Groves Trail narrative and at Shady Acres.
