Additionally, what makes this Walk very unique are the history stops found throughout the route, such as Firehouse #2. Walkers are encouraged to visit history stops to learn about important people and places in the area and the role they have played in shaping Houston.

The Walk is a great opportunity to meet The Woods Project’s students. Join us to celebrate our students and see the historic East End!
