LOCATION: Eastex/Jensen Area is a part of northeast Houston outside the North Loop on both sides of the important Eastex Freeway and Jensen Drive corridors.

COMMUNITY DESCRIPTION AND HISTORY: The many neighborhoods found here are made up of modest frame homes set in pine forests. Subdivisions include Huntington Place, Croyden Gardens and Epsom Downs, which was the site of a horse race track in the 1930s. Jensen was once the primary highway to east Texas but was replaced by the Eastex Freeway. The area is split between Houston, Aldine and North Forest school districts.
