Overview:


Second Ward is a neighborhood situated in the eastern part of Downtown Houston. It is located to the east of the Buffalo Bayou and north of Interstate 45. The district has a population of about 6,000 residents.

Neighborhood history:


The area was established in 1838 and was annexed by the city of Houston in 1866. The Second Ward was one of the first areas to be developed outside Downtown Houston after its incorporation as a city in 1837. In 1838, it became an official district under the name “Town”. In that year, a number of houses were built along Congress Avenue and Main Street (now known as Dallas Street). In 1840, William Marsh Rice purchased land from John Austin for $500 at what is now Fifth Street and Fannin Street (now known as McKinney Street). This land would later become Rice University. By 1870, there were a number of houses along Main Street between Congress Avenue and Travis Street (now known as Lamar Boulevard). By then, most residents worked either at Galveston or Harrisburg Railroad or at commercial establishments on Market Square (now known as Sam Houston Park). In 1866, when Houston was incorporated into a city from Harrisburg Town, Second Ward became one of its districts with about 2 square miles area covered by about 500 people living there.
