The St. Paul neighborhood is located three and one half miles west of the town of Hempstead in Waller County. To find this neighborhood, one must go west from Hempstead, following the Austin branch railroad, to a distance of three and one half miles. This leads one to the St. Paul neighborhood.
This neighborhood is not so very large. It runs a distance of about three miles in an east-to-west direction, and about two miles in a north-to south direction. There are twenty-eight homes located in this neighborhood.
The writer is a home-owner in this neighborhood, having lived there for quite a number of years. After seeing the prevailing conditions in this area for a number of years, the writer decided to make a general survey of all the homes. The writer's purpose for making this survey was to note the general living conditions of each family. After obtaining these facts, it is hoped that some suggestions will be offered each family along the line of improvement.
To obtain the information necessary, the writer visited each home in the neighborhood and made a case-study of each family. The data obtained has been compiled for the purpose of this study. The twenty-eight homes that were visited may be arranged into five classes according to the sizes. These homes were of different sizes, having one room, two rooms, three rooms, four rooms, and five rooms respectively.
