EMINENCE, TEXAS. Eminence is west of Farm Road 563 and south of Interstate Highway 10, forty-six miles east of Houston in northern Chambers County. The Eminence post office operated from 1898 until 1909. By 1939 a filling station-general store, a school, and a church marked the site at Eminence. A sawmill, operated by J. E. Cline, opened in 1940. By the mid-1970s the Eminence church, several cemeteries, and widely scattered buildings were all that remained.
