East Texas Offers Plenty of Ghost Towns

Ever heard of Acol, Texas? You probably won’t find it on a map now.

Texasscapes.com says Acol was a logging camp owned by Angelina County Lumber Company that actually moved on railroad cars so it could travel from forest to forest.

The town later became famous in forest history for its “wandering post office.”

Other now-defunct towns popped up to support the logging industry too. Lindsey Springs was built by Southern Pine Lumber Company in 1897 in Angelina County on a tract of timber that Texasscapes.com says was purchased to serve the lumber company’s new mill in Diboll.

Those buildings were often designed with the idea in mind that they could be moved.
