The East End represents a number of the city’s most historic and culturally significant neighborhoods. Many area residents can trace their ancestors back to some of the area’s early settlers and some of Houston’s original recorded deeds are in the East End.

The homes built in Eastwood were custom homes reflecting the early 20th century fondness for Craftsman, Arts & Crafts, Foursquare and Mission architecture. Today, Eastwood has one of Houston’s largest intact collections of these architectural styles.

Please take a look at the East End's premier neighborhoods:

Houston Country Club Place


East Lawndale

East End Entertainment Venues
Part of the vibrant redevelopment of downtown includes entertainment venues located in the eastern side of downtown including Minute Maid Park home of the Houston Astros, and the Toyota Center home to the Houston Aeros and Houston Rockets. Also calling the East End home is the brand new exciting Houston Dynamo, Houston’s first professional soccer team that has been met with great enthusiasm and support. This two time MLS champion will be calling the East End home very soon.

Cultural Arts
Houston is second to only New York as a major cultural arts center. More than 200 cultural institutions are dedicated to bringing art to the Houston community. Houston is one of the few U. S. Cities that offer world-class year round resident companies in all of the major performing arts. Visual arts are served with distinction in Houston by the Museum of Fine Arts, Contemporary Arts Museum and the Menil Collection. Joining the Menil are several other museums including a wide range of commercial galleries. East End treasures include our very own featuring and promoting Latino artists and theater groups and the Orange Show, providing extraordinary imagination and the opportunity to express personal artistic vision through unique public art.
