Harrisburg/Manchester has a history which predates Houston. Harrisburg was a community located at the confluence of Brays Bayou and Buffalo Bayou before the Texas Revolution. It was burned by Santa Anna’s army on their way to defeat at San Jacinto. Manchester lies to the east of Harrisburg, near the confluence of Sims Bayou and the Ship Channel. Its modest homes are surrounded by Channel industries. Harrisburg residential areas have largely disappeared, and its commercial district has not experienced the revival that the rise of the area’s Hispanic community has brought to other East End shopping districts.
