Oaks Historic District

Welcome to the Largest Historic District in Texas

With homes dating back 100-plus years to Beaumont's earliest days, we pride ourselves on the appearance, desirability, and preservation of the neighborhood, and there are a few extra precautions we take to ensure the authenticity of the area.

The District's boundaries are Beech Street on the North, Rusk on the South, 1st Street to the East, and 11th Street on the West.

A Certificate of Appropriateness is required for all exterior changes to a structure visible from the street right-of-way. Depending on the nature of the request, some can be approved by Planning staff, however, if it is a significant modification it may require review by the Historic Landmark Commission, which meets monthly. You can see deadlines for submissions and upcoming agendas here.

A Certificate of Appropriateness is not required for any interior projects but may be subject to a building permit. Be sure to contact Building Codes if you have any questions.
