CHANNEL, TEXAS. Channel, also known as Houston Terminals, was a residential community on the Houston Ship Channel in Harris County. A post office operated there from 1919 until 1920, when mail was delivered from Deepwater. Another post office operated from 1922 until 1923, when mail was delivered from Pasadena. The community's population was 100 in 1921, but the area was subsequently engulfed by industrial development, and the community was not shown on the 1936 county highway map.
