Fourth Ward TX History


Fourth Ward was founded in 1866 by freed slaves and was originally known as Freedmen's Town. The neighborhood was home to a thriving community of African Americans, and it was a center for culture and education.

In the early 20th century, Fourth Ward began to decline as white residents moved to other parts of the city.

It became a center for the civil rights movement in the 1960s. Many civil rights activists, including Eldrewey Stearns, lived in the neighborhood.
In the 1970s and 1980s, the neighborhood fell into disrepair, and many of its historic buildings were demolished.

In recent years, Fourth Ward has undergone a revival. New businesses and apartments have been built, and the neighborhood is once again becoming a vibrant and diverse community.
