Grapeland is a city in Houston County that is located west of Lufkin. It was first settled around 1872, when a railroad was built. It was originally known as “Grapevine,” in reference to the vines that had to be cut to make room for the railroad tracks. When the townsmen applied for a post office in 1873, the name was changed to Grapeland. Upon the railroad completion, the city instantly became a depot and a marketing center for local cotton producers. In 1913, a catastrophic fire destroyed fifteen of its businesses; however, the town managed to recover. Ranching, forestry, oil, and gas production, in addition to the existing cotton production, became the town’s economic mainstays. After WWII, peanuts replaced cotton. Since then, Grapeland celebrates an annual Peanut Festival and it has become locally known as the “queen city of the sand flats.” As of 2010, its population was 1,489.
