Like most areas in Houston, Camp Logan played an integral role in the city’s rich history.
In 1917, shortly after the United States had declared war on Germany, the War Department commissioned two military camps to be built in Harris County. Camp John A. Logan, along with Ellington Field, was constructed in 1917-1918 and served as a training facility for the US Army. It was named after the founder of Memorial Day and was made on a 1,400-acre land, just three and a half miles from downtown Houston. It prepared over 30,000 soldiers for service during World War I.
The Third Battalion of the black Twenty-fourth United States Infantry Regiment was assigned to guard the then under-construction Camp Logan.
In 1918, Camp Logan was turned into military hospital and a golf course – the first one in Houston – was built for the recovering servicemen. The next year, the camp was decommissioned and closed.
Enterprising brothers, Mike and Will Hogg, bought 875 acres of Camp Logan, along with an adjoining property from the family of businessman William Marsh Rice.
They had planned to develop home sites on the property, but decided instead to focus their investments somewhere else. The brothers eventually sold the property to the city of Houston, and it was turned into a park dedicated to the memory of soldiers who died serving in World War I, now known as Memorial Park.
Today, some remnants of its history still remain – chunks of concrete, a shelled-road leading to the golf course, and trenches used for training.
Camp Logan community has deed restrictions that prevent construction of commercial establishments inside the neighborhood.
Residents of the community enjoy close proximity to Memorial Park, Houston’s largest public park – and one of the largest urban parks in the country (at 1,400+ acres). The park offers venues for various outdoor activities like swimming, tennis, softball, volleyball, croquet, skating, cycling, and track.
Many Houstonians frequent the Seymour Lieberman Exercise Trail, a three-mile jogging trail made of crushed granite that courses through Memorial Park and Camp Logan.
Another popular destination is the Memorial Park Golf Course, a top rated municipal golf course with a 73 rating and slope rating of 122 that is easily accessible for those who reside in the Camp Logan neighborhood.
Memorial Park is also home to the Houston Arboretum and Nature Park, a nature sanctuary that provides nature educational facilities for children.
Hikers, bike enthusiasts, in-line skaters, and roller skaters can take advantage of the Memorial Park Picnic Loop, a multi-use trail open during park hours. There are several trails available both for bikers and hikers as well.
Camp Logan is also near the dining and commercial establishments along the Washington Corridor, while shopping destinations like the Galleria are highly accessible. Other commercial, entertainment, and cultural hubs are only a short drive away.
