The Pine Bough - Vol 12, December 2007

This issue of the Pine Bough focuses on the 114 year history of ownership and management of the East Texas forest by Temple businesses, following Temple-Inland's fall 2007 sale of more than a million acres of Texas forestlands. Also featured is an article on Diboll's radio station KSPL, which served East Texas listeners from 1957 until 1981. The scrapbook section features 10 pages of interesting subjects, including the Neches River, the Burke, Rockland, and Aldridge communities, and East Texas railroads. Additionally, the news and notes section shares about The History Center's exciting year of events and activities.
