Rice Military

Center of Houston’s Inner Loop

Rice Military’s name originates 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” in Rice Military comes from the family that used to own the area. One of the most popular of the Rices, William Marsh Rice, left behind a fortune to found Rice University. Bankers Trust Co. paid $54,425 ($743,300 in current money) to the Rice family and another party for the entire area that would become Rice Military.

Around the 1990’s 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.  Rice military consists mostly of two and three story single-family and townhomes plus a few original homes sprinkled throughout the neighborhood.  Median value of homes are $445K according to HAR.com.
