Magnolia Park borders the Houston Ship Channel just south of the Turning Basin, the location of some of the first wharves built when Houston became a deep water port in 1913. The community thrived as a home for workers on the docks and in industries lining the channel. For a time it was even an incorporated municipality. As early as the 1930s, Magnolia Park was developing an identity as a center of Houston's Hispanic community. This continues, especially around recently revived commercial areas near Harrisburg and Wayside.
