East End Rising Tour Information

Dear East End Rising Study Tour Participants,

We are very pleased you will be joining us Saturday, September 25th for The Houston Seminar’s deep dive into Houston’s East End! We have a full day and a full bus so please arrive early so we can leave promptly at 10:00 AM.

Parking & Departure Instructions

We will meet at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, 3471 Westheimer Rd, 77027. Please park in the southwest corner of the parking lot located on Edloe St.

St. Luke’s has asked us to share that there may be soccer participants parking during the morning, so please be mindful of the young children and families when entering the lot. And finally, St. Luke’s advises participants not to leave any valuables in their cars, as its lot is not constantly monitored.

Departure Time: 10:00 AM
Return Time: 5:30 PM
