The Greater Eastwood Super Neighborhood, popularly known as the East End, has “more history than the city of Houston itself,” as former Mayor Annise Parker once said. Filled with historic structures, home to one of Houston’s first master-planned neighborhoods, and the backbone of the city’s early industry, the East End has been at the center of Houston’s development since its founding. In fact, Harrisburg was the seat of government for the Republic of Texas in 1836. Home to the East End Cultural District, the East End plays host to an impressive and ever-growing collection of visual and performing arts venues, artist studios, makerspaces, cultural institutions, urban farms, iconic restaurants, outdoor murals, and reimagined parks and public spaces that serve as hubs for cultural activity. The East End has the largest concentration of outdoor murals in the city including the “Rebirth of our Nationality” by Leo Tanguma. The newly completed Metrorail Green Line connects East End residents from the Magnolia Park Transit Center to downtown Houston, the Medical Center, and Museum District, and provides access to the many East End Houston attractions. With over 10 miles of hike-bike trails and shared bikeways and more than a dozen maintained park spaces and bike plazas, and a weekly East End Street Market on Sundays, the East End is attractive to families, urban commuters, and outdoor enthusiasts alike.
