99 Things: The History Center

One of my favorite things to do in the Texas Forest Country is to visit the History Center in Diboll. A few years back, we did our 5 PM news from there and it was so much fun. The facility is full of great exhibits and information on the history of Diboll.

Located in Diboll, Angelina County, Texas, deep in the heart of the beautiful East Texas pineywoods, we are a new public history and archives center that collects, preserves, and makes available the history of our region for the educational use and benefit of present and future generations.

Providing research opportunities is the core of our mission, and our holdings include manuscripts, business and local government records, maps, newspapers, oral histories, books, and more than 200,000 photographs. We also have exciting exhibits both inside and out that help interpret the Center's growing collections as well as the area's rich cultural and natural history.
