The tour is a documentary; a collection of interviews, historical information, storytelling by artists, activists and community elders, all celebrating the heritage of Houston's Third Ward. This website serves as a home base for information, including a map of the tour and a Facebook portal for participants to share their thoughts, experiences and insights. Because the tour is online, the information is  accessible to not only the residents of Third Ward but the greater Houston community. If you are in the Houston area, we encourage your to visit Historic Third Ward and experience the sites live! The tour can be experienced as a walking tour (either solo or in small groups) or by car if preferred.
