We used to lead the nation in cases of yellow fever and cholera, and we had frequent cases of malaria well into the 50's. The large number of bayous has been a constant source of flooding, the Flood Control District starting converting the bayous in the 1950's from muddy rivers to the managed culverts you see today.

But the Fifth Ward wasn't always a crime plagued neighborhood that was ignored or feared by the outside world. Read the full article>>


Houston's Lost History: Camp Logan Race Riots
The early fall of 1917 was one of the darkest times in Houston's history. World War One was raging in Europe and the United States was beginning to ship thousands of soldiers overseas.
