The Six Wards of Houston
The Old Sixth Ward Neighborhood Association recorded residents of the neighborhood talking about their houses and what the character of the neighborhood means to them. There are currently four videos up – Volume One, Volume Two, Volume Three, Volume Four.
If you’re a Houston transplant like I am you probably have no idea what a ward is much less where they all are. Here’s a great run-down of the Six Wards of Houston. The Houston Chronicle has a feature on the wards with a helpful map. Looking it over, one of the things you’ll likely realize is how much of Houston you’ve never set foot in. May I suggest a New Year’s Resolution? Get out there and do some local tourism!!!
