1. Lindsey Springs Logging Camp Marker
Inscription. The naturally occurring Lindsey Springs, located approximately 3/4 of a mile northeast of this location, became the site in 1899 of the Southern Pine Lumber Company's first logging camp. The springs provided an important water source for this vital camp, which by 1900 included company housing for about 110 people, a store, school, and church. A narrow gauge railroad transported logs from Lindsey Springs to the mill in nearby Diboll. The area's marketable timber had been cut by 1906, resulting in the camp's relocation to an area west of Diboll in Trinity County.
Erected 1993 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 8708.)
