Freedmen’s Town, also known as Fourth Ward, is a small neighborhood on the west end of downtown Houston that was founded in 1866 by emancipated slaves. This gem of a community was named a Historical District in the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. In 1984 there were 530 historic structures that were standing; today only 30 remain.
