Mapping the Third Ward in Houston
Story Work in the Face of Redevelopment

This project took place in December 2006 and July 2007 in Houston, Texas as a collaboration between CDS and Carroll Parrott Blue's The Dawn Project
to capture stories about the Third Ward, an historically Black community, now facing gentrification and redevelopment that threatens it's identity.

We have collected stories about the neighborhood and the personal histories that connect people to the place and to the past, and address the values and perspectives that should inform any development into the future.

The map below provides an outline of the neighborhood and many significant stories and places.
