Houstonians have seen the East End change dramatically over the last 20 years with the construction of Toyota Centre, Minute Maid Park, and BBVA stadium. But this side of the city has more to offer than stadiums and the slick title “Eado”. In 1840, Houston was split into four wards, with today’s East End stretching over the Second and Third Ward. The Second Ward was home to lawyers and merchants, while the third ward housed businesspeople, craftsmen, and professionals. If you look closely, you can still see the remnants of these times. Today, bars, cafes, restaurants, and murals are popping up in the area, as artists, craftsmen, and young professionals move to the East End.
