ALDRIDGE, TX (ANGELINA COUNTY)
ALDRIDGE, TEXAS (Angelina County). Aldridge was on the Neches River near Boykin Springs in southern Angelina County. The settlement was founded in 1903 by Rockland lumberman Hal Aldridge, who built a sawmill at the site. A local post office operated briefly in 1906. The sawmill closed in 1920 after most of the surrounding forest had been cut, and within a short time the town died.
