Rice Military Community History
The origin of the name comes from nearby Camp Logan, a World War I-era U.S. Army training camp, which was replaced by Memorial Park after the war. The Rice family used to own the land where Rice Military is currently located and sold it to Bankers Trust company for the equivalent of $743,000 in today's dollars. Quite a bargain given what the area has become. One of the most well-known members of the Rice family, William Marsh Rice, left behind a fortune to found Rice University.
Rice Military was "once-rural community built more than 80 years ago that featured neighborhood stores and blue-collar bungalows on tree-lined streets"
Around the 1990s artists began arriving in the area and caused it to change. By 2003 many young professionals moved to Rice Military to be in proximity to restaurants, theaters, and Memorial Park. In 2003 the community was trying to have a roundabout at Washington Avenue and Westcott Street created; that roundabout would link Rice Military with Downtown Houston. By 2008, the immediate Rice Military area had reached peak development as older bungalows were replaced with contemporary freestanding and attached townhomes. As a result, development and gentrification started spreading north toward Interstate 10 to encompass areas like Cottage Grove that residents started identifying as Rice Military.
