In 1955, travelers who ventured out beyond Houston’s southwest boundaries saw rice fields and prairie. Frank Sharp was different. He saw the potential for the WORLD’S LARGEST SUBDIVISION: SHARPSTOWN.
It became, and still is, one of the largest housing developments in the country with more than 6,800, single-family dwellings.
