EAST BERNARD, TEXAS. East Bernard is on the west side of the San Bernard River at the intersection of State Highway 60 and U.S. Highway 90A, fifteen miles north of Wharton in northeast Wharton County. The community was originally on the east side of the river, where Jethro Spivi built the first residence around 1850; hence the name East Bernard. Settlement was slow until 1859 and the arrival of the Buffalo Bayou, Brazos and Colorado Railway. A bridge was built, and the depot, Bernard Station, though originally located on the east bank of the river, was moved by 1869 to the west side, to the site of East Bernard's future Main Street.

News and Announcements

Tuesday 23, 2024

Trash Service - Texas Pride is out and about today.  They picked up the outskirts of the city and will be back tomorrow (Tuesday) to complete the interior of the city and a few stops across the tracks. We will update this section if anything changes.  

Storm Debris Removal - We have signed a contract with a debris removal company and are waiting to sign a second contract with a monitoring company which is a FEMA requirement.  Once that second contract is signed, the debris removal will commence.  This process involves careful documentation to ensure the city qualifies for FEMA reimbursement. We are hopeful that the debris will start being collected this week.  If you have debris, it is extremely important to ensure that debris is left next to the road as the debris removal company WILL NOT go on private property to remove debris.  If you see your neighbor has debris not in the proper location, please provide them with this information.
