History in a Pecan Shell

Bounded on the S by Holcombe Boulvevard and surrounded on the N, W and E by West University Place, Southside Place is an independent municipality incorporated in 1934.

A post office opened sometime prior to 1940 and the population for that year’s census was about 1,400. The largely residential community declined in the late 1970s to a low of 1,263.

Southside Place has a few businesses, its own fire and police department and as recently as 2001, it maintained its own water system. The town has since removed the water tower shown above.
