Deep in the East Texas Piney Woods is Angelina County.


One of the note worthy small communities on the cusp of the entry to Lufkin, in this Colorful County, is Diboll Texas.


The luxurious forest makes a lovely place to live.  From the cute townsite to the varied country cages,  this community exudes charm.


According to the brief historical facts found,  this has always been a timber town.


It sounds as if it had its beginnings in the early 1900s.  A sawmill quickly evolved into two, and then during the great depression, the town pooled its resources and funds to keep it going.


It is an amazing story of perseverance!  It is also a tri ute to American creativity.   True to the American dream, it has been a slow but steady success story.


The town expanded to include a large commissary, Doctors offices, a Post Office, groceries, drug stores and schools.


The major industry continues to be timber. According to one of the residents, The company has

recently been sold to International Paper Co.


After seeing Temple Inland signs along the roads for years, the change will feel odd for a while.  The good news is that businesses of many kinds are growing.  This provides the opportunity for people to continue to pursue lifestyles of beauty and tranquility fringed with the luxurious backdrop of towering trees.


Another plus is that all that tree cover produces a more temperate climate than is found in many other East Texas towns!


If you are looking for a pleasant East Texas destination, this one is definately worth the trip!
