The City of Diboll is nestled in the beautiful Pineywoods of East Texas. Founded in 1894 by Virginia native Thomas Lewis Latane Temple as the home of the Southern Pine Lumber Company, Diboll has always served the forest industry.
Today, Diboll is home to six types of industry as well as an award winning public library, the 18-hole Neches Pines Golf Course, the 5,400 square foot Lottie & Arthur Temple Civic Center, numerous food establishments and small businesses, and the Diboll Independent School District. The History Center is home to over 11,500 square feet of historical materials and more than 250,000 photographs that document the rich history of East Texas as well as the forestry and railroad industries that call this region home, and the 66 acre Old Orchard Park is the perfect place for a picnic or a family reunion.
