Before the 1950s. Gulfton was a rural precinct that belonged to Westmore Farms. In the 50s, to the southeast of Highway 59, the Shenandoah subdivision was built. In the 60s and 70s, several people migrated to Gulfton during the oil boom. New apartment blocks were built in a hurry to house the influx of immigrants. They were not ideal for those who wanted to settle here permanently. That is why these apartments had no sidewalks. The whole complex looked like a bunch of wacky tenements.
