During the 1930s, developer William G. Farrington purchased 300 acres west of Houston that became the beginning of residential Tanglewood, named after his daughter's favorite book. The first neighborhood didn’t open until 1949. Even though the first few months didn’t prove financially beneficial, they quickly began to sell homes in the area after a number of floods in the surrounding areas. The Tanglewood Homes Association is in charge of the neighborhood today. Former President George H. W. Bush once called upscale Tanglewood home.
