RED BLUFF, TEXAS (Harris County). Red Bluff was located four miles north of Seabrook and east of State Highway 146 on Galveston Bay in southeastern Harris County. A post office, established in J. E. Idlebrook's general store in 1880, was discontinued by 1894. In 1885 the community had a population of thirty, a church, a school, and a general store. The population reached 100 in 1890. State highway maps in 1936 showed only scattered dwellings, many vacant, and a small county park at the site. By the 1980s the former community had become Shoreacres development, a suburb of LaPorte.
