Though founded by T.L.L. Temple in 1893, Diboll was not incorporated as a city until 1962. In the interim, Diboll was a "company town" centered around Southern Pine Lumber Company and its operations. Citizens voted to incorporate in 1962, with the first city council meeting held on July 10, 1962. Collections in this category include official city council minutes from 1962 to 1998 and the official city ordinance index, 1962-1967.
