The summers are long, humid and hot, and the winters quite short, with record highs of 115 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer, and record lows of less-than-balmy minus-3 degrees during the winter.
Brick Streets Historic District: This is a beautiful 29-block stretch of historical buildings generally built in the early 1900s. The homes in this area are usually smaller duplexes and single-family homes, since they were originally designed for working middle-class residents. The streets are paved with bricks that give the area a unique atmosphere. Here you can find Brady's Coffee Shop on Rusk Street and several sewing stores.
Copeland: Located just a short distance away from the golf course to the south of the city center, the Copeland Woods subdivision is a somewhat remote, wooded residential area. Children living here are provided with buses to school in the Whitehouse district. Amenities are available a short drive into the center of town.
Charnwood Residential Historic District: This area is spread across 12 blocks at the crest of a hill and was developed starting in 1870 all the way to 1950. Due to the large time span of development the housing styles are quite mixed. Half a mile away to the north is the Smith County Courthouse on Broadway. This district is home to the Mother Frances Sleep Center and the Trinity Sleep Clinic.
The Cascades: This is a 500-acre development with a highly rated, championship-level golf course. The annual Texas State Open tournament has been hosted here since 2006. The houses in this neighborhood are spacious and quite luxurious and designed as country cottages, traditional Texas homesteads and even Italian Villas. Home lots face the golf course or are nestled more snugly into the woods.
