Gallery of Houston Homes

Camp Logan is more than a thriving enclave of old homes and new townhomes tucked into the eastern edge of Memorial Park. It holds an important place in Houston's history. Initially developed in 1917 as a military training base for troops fighting in World War I, the area was modified in 1918 into a military hospital. Men convalescing there were the beneficiaries of Houston's first golf course, constructed on their behalf. By March of 1919, Camp Logan, having served its wartime duty, was closed.

The Hogg brothers acquired the land after the war and gave 1,000 acres to the city. Houston, in turn, created Memorial Park to commemorate the soldiers lost overseas. Since that time the land has grown and prospered, creating a recreational oasis to the west of Downtown, a lush harbor in the middle of a grand city.

Southeast of the Westcott and Washington intersection, framed by Buffalo Bayou and the old Texas Central Railway, is Rice Military. Residents love this neighborhood for its immediate proximity to the park and Downtown. Known for its eclectic array of housing, the area predates its neighbor, Camp Logan, by eight years, although the origins of the area are not clear. Its history does include many aspects of the early West End avant-garde influence seen in the many unique structures characteristic of the area, most notably the Beer Can house. Though it remains an urban center, Rice Military's small bungalows and shotgun houses have fallen away to the growth of skyline-lancing townhomes of distinguished contemporary design.

Both Camp Logan and Rice Military present an ideal location for young professionals and older individuals who value the nearness of the theatres, museums, and the fine shopping and dining. They welcome the exchange of lawn maintenance for the jogging trails and tranquil setting of Memorial Park and suburban sprawl for diversity and urban personality. Most of all, residents appreciate the neighborhood feel while staying in touch with the vibrant energy of the city.

Camp Logan es más que una mezcla divina de casas antiguas y nuevas metidas en el borde este de Memorial Park. Forma una parte importante en la historia de Houston. Desarrollado originalmente en 1917 como una base de entrenamiento militar para las tropas de combate en la Primera Guerra Mundial, el área fue modificado en 1918 en un hospital militar. Los hombres convalecientes eran los beneficiarios del primer campo de golf en Houston, construido en honor a ellos. Para marzo de 1919, Camp Logan, después de haber cumplido con su propósito durante la guerra, fue cerrado.

Los hermanos “Hogg” compraron los terrenos después de la guerra y le regaló 1,000 acres a la ciudad. Houston, en torno, creó al Memorial Park para conmemorar a los soldados perdidos en el extranjero. Desde entonces, el espacio ha crecido y prosperado, creando un oasis de recreo al oeste del centro de Houston.

Al sudeste de la intersección de Westcott y Washington, está el barrio Rice Military. Los residentes del area estan encantados por su proximidad inmediata al parque y el centro de la ciudad. Esta area le lleva ocho años a su vecino, el barrio Camp Logan. Aunque se mantiene como un centro urbano, lo más notable hoy en día por este barrio es la cantidad semejante de viviendas contemporaneas de dos pisos.

Tanto Camp Logan como Rice Military presentan una ubicación ideal para los profesionales jóvenes y personas de cualquier edad que aprecian la proximidad de los teatros, los museos y las tiendas más refinadas. Prefieren en intercambio del mantenimiento del césped por las pistas de jogging y el ambiente tranquilo de Memorial Park. Más que nada, los residentes disfrutan de sentirse como en un barrio acogedor mientras mantenerse al tanto con todo lo que ofrece la ciudad tan activa de Houston.
