Driskell was near the junction of Farm roads 2022 and 2423, eight miles northeast of Crockett in east central Houston County. It was first settled in the mid-1870s by families from Cherokee County. Around 1890 it had a cotton gin, a church, and a number of scattered houses. By the mid-1930s it was no longer shown on highway maps.
