History

Channelview was given its name since it is located on the northeastern curve of the Houston Ship Channel. The site of Channelview was home to Lorenzo de Zavala, one of the founding fathers of the Republic of Texas. During World War II the area south of Market to the Ship Channel, and what is now DeZavala St. to the tollway, was part of the U.S. Army Ordnance Depot.

Channelview was the site of a notable murder plot occurring in 1991. Wanda Webb Holloway was upset that her daughter, Shanna, had failed two consecutive years to make her junior high school's cheerleading squad. Holloway came to believe that the fault lay not with Shanna's inability to make the squad, but with Verna Heath, whose daughter, Amber Heath, was a main rival of Shanna's. Holloway asked Terry Harper, her former brother-in-law, to find a hit man to murder Verna Heath, hoping that Amber would be distraught and perform poorly in tryouts, thus allowing Shanna to make the squad. However, Harper notified authorities of the plot, and an undercover police officer arrested Holloway. Holloway argued that Harper was guilty of entrapment, saying that she never intended anyone to get killed. A jury sentenced Holloway to 15 years for attempted murder. The story was made into a 1993 HBO movie, The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader-Murdering Mom. Channelview is also home to Houston Astros pitcher Chris Sampson and former outfielder Glenn Wilson. Another famous athlete to come out of Channelview is former Chicago Bears (NFL) wide receiver Johnny Knox. He graduated class of 2005 from Channelview High School.
