About the District
The Greater East End District encompasses 16 square miles immediately adjacent to Downtown Houston. Its boundaries are the Union Pacific Railroad tracks on the west; Clinton Drive on the North; Loop 610 and the Port of Houston on the East and I-45 and Telephone Road on the South.
The East End holds the heart of Houston's early history and industry and is the site of old Harrisburg, early Texas trading post and seat of government for the Republic of Texas in 1836. This culturally diverse area is home to more than 85,000 residents and over 2500 businesses including industry giants such as Rhodia, Inc., Halliburton, Maxwell House/Kraft Foods and Stewart & Stevenson.
