Buna Texas History:
The Beaumont Lumber Company mill was established in the area and named Carrolla. The community that developed around the mill was renamed Buna. The Buna post office was established in 1893. The lumber company built a ten mile tram line between Buna and the Neches River. John Henry Kirby later purchased the line, converted it to a standard railroad line, and extended it to Beaumont in the south and Roganville in the north. This extended line was named the gulf, Beaumont and Kansas City Railway. In 1902 the Orange and Northwestern Railway extended a line from Buna to Newton. Today oil, logging and farming are still important industries.
