Channelview, Texas

Channelview is a census-designated place in eastern Harris County, Texas. Located at the point where the San Jacinto River forms the Old River, south of Interstate Highway 10 and the Missouri Pacific Railroad and eight miles southeast of Houston. Channelview was named for its location along the northeastern curve of the Houston Ship Channel and it is described as an oil refinery suburb of metropolitan Houston.

Around 1916, after oil was discovered in the area, blue-collar oil refinery workers and their families resided in Channelview. During the 1930s, a post office, schools, a saw mill and several businesses were constructed. By 1947, Channelview was home to 700 residents and 23 businesses. In 1967, a Sinclair Petrochemical plant initiated production of isophthalic acid and metaxylene near the ship channel. In 1979, ARCO Chemical built the world's first chemical plant designed specifically to produce methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE). In 1994, the Channelview plant was the largest MTBE facility in the world. Today, Channelview has a population of nearly 30,000 with approximately 650 businesses.
