Southside Place 100 Year Celebration 192100 Year SSP v6 copy4 - 2024

As many of you know, 2024 marks the 100th birthday of the founding of Southside Place! While many things have changed over the last 100 years, the special connection that residents feel to our community has remained the same.

Our Centennial Committee is planning some fun events to observe this milestone, culminating in a grand celebration in October. We know that everyone is busy, so we will be providing informal activities throughout the year and incorporating some Centennial flair into existing events. Our goal is to include as many SSP residents as possible!

Please visit the 100 Year Celebration page for more information on upcoming events and activities, as well as fun facts about the city.

HAPPY Cover

Who Knew Texas' Greatest Dog Hero was from Southside Place?

Southside presents a children's book, Happy: The True Story of a Stray Dog Who Became a Hero. This illustrated book recounts the story of a neighborhood dog who saved two Darcus Street families from a house fire in 1931 and set into motion the birth of our Southside Volunteer Fire Department. Happy's heroism also earned him the title of Texas' Greatest Dog Hero of 1931.

Pick up your copy of Happy and a "happy in Southside" t-shirt at City Hall.
