YMCA at Cinco Ranch

Houston was a sleepy bayou town with a population of approximately 25,000 when a group of Houston businessmen met with a vision. The date was January 20, 1886 and these excited and determined individuals put plans together to bring a YMCA to Houston.

The YMCA began in rented quarters on Main Street in 1886. In 1907, the Y moved to its first permanent home at the corner of Fannin and McKinney. It was this site where the YMCA was housed for the next 34 years. From this location the YMCA taught thousands of Houston boys to swim, provided dormitory housing for young men coming to Houston to seek fortune, began formal adult education, and founded South Texas Junior College and South Texas School of Law. To add to the list of phenomenal programs and services, the Y also began serving young men in the military that traveled through Houston.
