The Tilson Homes story begins in 1908 when the Tilson family moved to Houston. Brothers Horace and Jack took jobs building oil derricks all over Texas, California and Mexico. In 1932, Horace and Jack moved back to Houston and began Tilson Construction Company. During the first decade of the company’s history, Tilson would take on any type of construction job. Whether it was residential or commercial, it did not matter; the Tilson brothers just wanted to survive the depression.
Through the years, the Tilson work ethic has been instilled in its employees. Tilson Homes remains the oldest name in home construction in Texas. Tilson continues to be a family-owned and managed business. Many of Tilson's subcontractors are second generation, and some have been working on Tilson Homes since 1962. Today, as in the past, Tilson Homes carries on a proud tradition of "building homes on rural land throughout the State of Texas."
