Eureka Mills

Eureka Mills, on the western edge of Houston in central Harris County, had a cotton factory in 1872 with about seventy-five operatives. A post office, established there in 1872, was discontinued in 1879, but was still listed on postal route maps in 1888, when the community was a stop on the Houston and Texas Central Railway. By the 1980s the site served as a major trainyard for the Missouri, Kansas and Texas line.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
