Indian Heights Neighborhood

Wenonah Blvd. - Indian Heights - Hiawatha - Onaway Trail - Seymour Road - Kessler Blvd.

The intent of the businessman involved with platting the Indian-Heights Subdivision was to create an area of exclusive homes. This was accomplished by enforcing deed restrictions to permit only one residence per lot, with each house to include at least six rooms, and for the cost of each house to be greater than $8,500. No apartment houses, stores or filling stations were permitted on these lots. Soon thereafter there was competition from the newly opened Country Club Addition. In the 1930s, the depression slowed new home construction in Wichita Falls and the shortage of building material had a big impact in the early 1940s. After the end of World War II, building activities vigorously resumed and many homes were constructed.
