SOUTH HOUSTON - 77587
South Houston, located in the southeastern corner of Harris County, is a small town with all the small town amenities. During South Houston's early years, local farmers grew strawberries, figs and other various vegetables. Once produced, local growers shipped their produce on the tracks of the Galveston, Houston and Henderson Railroad. After a destructive hurricane passed through South Houston in 1915, many local businesses and farm lands were destroyed. The Houston Ship Channel helped rebuild the economy and brought manufacturing industries to the region. Residents in the area attend the Pasadena Independent School District and enjoy many of the city's local parks and recreational facilities.
