Lufkin

Named for Abraham P. Lufkin, a Galveston merchant and friend of railroader Paul Bremond, Lufkin began as a crossroad settlement, but soon attracted businesses and professionals from Homer, then the county seat of Angelina County. As a result, Homer became a ghost town. The city of Lufkin’s growth soared in the late 1930s and 40s with the establishment of several major industries. Today, Lufkin and Angelina County offer a unique combination of friendly families, quiet neighborhoods, and one of the most dynamic business communities in Texas. It is a great place to raise a family and enjoy outdoor activities found in the forested lake country of East Texas. Lufkin is a a regional attraction that brings nearly one million visitors each year to its annual events, shopping experiences, dining options, and more. www.visitlufkin.com
