Rice Military was originally the site of Camp Logan, a World War I army post. An historical marker commemorates the 1917 riot that occurred in the camp, when veteran black soldiers from Illinois rebelled against their treatment in segregated Houston. The camp was also the source of Houston's 1918 outbreak of the Spanish flu. When Camp Logan was de-commissioned after the war, the land was purchased by Mike and Will Hogg, sons of the former governor of Texas. The brothers donated the land to the city, dedicating Memorial Park in memory of World War I soldiers.
