Logging Camp No 1
Southern Pine Lumber Company's Camp No. 1 in Trinity County, about twelve miles northwest of Diboll, in 1907. At the time, seventy-five men, some with families, lived at the camp. Only the women and children were home when this photo was made in the middle of the day. The camp existed from 1907 to about 1912, when it moved and combined with other camps in Houston and Angelina counties. The former camp area became the headquarters of Southern Pine Lumber Company's cattle ranching during the 1920s.
