The Centennial Committee is excited to reveal plans for our last event of this 100th celebratory year……the Grand Finale Birthday Party. Mark your calendars for Thursday night, November 16, 2023, when we convene at Brockman Hall for Opera on the campus of Rice University.  Such a special event required an equally special venue. Dubbed by Texas Architecture Magazine as “Fantasy Land”, the style of this exquisite building was greatly influenced by the Royal Opera of Versailles. This special evening will be filled with friends, food, and beautiful music as we blow out the candles on Southampton’s 100-year birthday.


How fitting it is that the last of our Centennial event is to be held on the campus of Rice University (née Institute). In 1923, when E. H. Fleming bought 160 acres located between Ashby Street, Bissonnet, Greenbriar (originally S. Rheinermann), and Rice Boulevard, one of the attractions to this growing area was the close proximity to the prestigious Rice Institute. So as we close out Southampton’s centennial year, we toast the Southampton residents who have come before us over the past 100 years. Their fortitude, their foresight, and their adventurous spirit paved the way for the lovely and gracious neighborhood that Southampton Place is today.
