Second Ward was one of the first Hispanic neighborhoods in Houston. It is the home of a number of important Hispanic institutions, including Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church, Ripley House, and Talento Bilingue. The northern portion of the neighborhood is industrial. Most of the housing in the area was built before World War II. The largest block of post war housing is the Clayton Homes public housing project on the community’s western edge. In recent years, the area’s proximity to downtown has made it possible for a number of restaurants, especially along Navigation, to attract a city-wide following.
