"I went to the district on a tour of Museo Urbano, a tiny museum in a historically significant building that tells the fascinating history of Segundo Barrio. Prior to visiting, I had been most interested in seeing the building since it used to be a boarding house occupied by Henry O. Flipper from 1919–20. I won’t go into the intriguing details of Flipper’s life—especially since it’s not a main focus of the museum—but his story is definitely worth exploring, and some historical sites associated with him are located within the Texas Mountain Trail Region."
