Unknown to even most Native Houstonians, Camp Logan/Rice Military neighborhood, adjacent to Memorial Park, played historic role in Houston. Originally formed as a US Army truing center, Camp John A. Logan, named for the founder of Memorial Day, was constructed on 1,400 acres and trained 30,000 soldiers for service. By 1918, Camp Logan was transformed into a military hospital and Houston’s first golf course. The camp was decommissioned and closed in March, 1919. Enter the time machine to 2015 and this area is now very sought after. Today, Camp Logan/Rice Military is a residential neighborhood of older original homes and a mix of new single family and town homes close Memorial Park and the now popular Washington Avenue entertainment district.
