Deweyville is a census-designated place in Newton County. It was established in 1898 as a site for sawmill by the Sabine Tram Company, which had a logging operation in the area. Back then, it was known as either Princeton or Possum Bluff. Deweyville was named after George Dewey, a United States Navy admiral who won the battle of Manila Bay during the same year when a rail line was built in the area as well. A couple of years later, a post office was inaugurated. Deweyville was a typical sawmill town, where the general store, hotel, community house, and staff housing were all owned by a lumber company. For a time being, Deweyville was the largest town in Newton Country. However, it underwent a series of setbacks in the 1940s. In 1943, a catastrophic fire destroyed the sawmill, and the Sabine and Neches Valley line abandoned the town.
