The East Texas Treatment Center began as a dream over a half century ago… the dream of a small group of concerned citizens who wanted to better the East Texas community by making physical therapy available for those individuals suffering from cerebral palsy and other physical handicaps. It began with the love of a father, Reverend Eugene Harris, whose small daughter, Caren Jean Harris, was stricken with cerebral palsy. Thus through the love and devotion of Reverend Harris, the Gregg County Treatment Center for the Physically Handicapped was born. Operating in a small house in Longview in 1950, the Center quickly outgrew its small quarters and moved to Kilgore in 1952 when Mayor Roy H. Laird donated a larger home for use. Again, the Center grew and as a result, a building campaign was initiated in 1960, culminating into the present-day, 15,000 square foot building which opened in 1962.
