Walkway through Memorial Park near Rice Military, Houston

About Rice Military

Rice Military is a neighborhood in West Houston that stretches from Washington Avenue in the north to Buffalo Bayou in the south, Westcott Street in the west and Shepherd Drive in the east. It is located in the heart of Houston’s Inner Loop, making it easy to access downtown Houston and other neighborhoods including Houston Heights, Garden Oaks, and Montrose.

The community gets its name from a former U.S. Army training camp called Camp Logan that used to be nearby where Memorial Park is now. It is also named after the Rice family, who used to own the land that the community now sits on. Up until the 1980s, it was a quiet working-class neighborhood. However, as the economy in Houston boomed, more people began moving into the neighborhood, and it has since grown into a thriving Houston suburb.

Activities & Amenities in Rice Military

People who own Rice Military real estate love the fact that they have access to all the amenities of downtown Houston, as well as beautiful parks, hiking and cycling trails, and excellent schools. Although it is a mostly residential community with gated communities, townhouse complexes, and streets lined with single-family homes, it also has many shops, restaurants, and landmarks.

The most famous attraction in Rice Military is the Beer Can House. Back in the 1960s, home owner John Milkovisch began covering his house on Malone Street in flattened beer cans, beer caps, and bottles. The home is now an iconic piece of folk art that attracts people from around the world.

One of the most appealing aspects of Rice Military is that it sits between Houston’s Memorial Park and Buffalo Bayou Park. Both have wide open green spaces, beautiful waterways, and paths for walking, jogging, and cycling. Residents of Rice Military can be at either park in just minutes from most homes.
