The Old Sixth Ward, designated as a city historic district in 1998, contains the highest intact concentration of Victorian-era buildings in Houston. Located just northwest of downtown, the neighborhood retains the feel of a modest, self-contained area with its 19th century and early 20th century homes, corner stores, churches, school, and former fire station. In 2007, most of the Old Sixth Ward was designated by the City as a Protected Historic District. The neighborhood is also listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
