Culberson was on Black Cypress Bayou ten miles southwest of Linden in southwestern Cass County. A post office was established there in 1883 with I. S. Lacy as the first postmaster. In 1884 the community had a school, two churches, a gristmill, a gin, a general store, and a population of fifty. In 1890 the population of Culberson was reported as 100, but by 1896 it had declined to thirty. The post office was closed in May 1904 and the mail sent to Lassater in Marion County. On the 1936 highway map, a factory and several houses are shown near the site where Culberson was probably located but was not named. By 1983 the area was entirely rural.
