- East Mayfield, Texas
East Mayfield was a town in central Sabine County,
Texas, United States.
Earle Bradford Mayfield, a state and later U.S. senator, the town came into being around 1912 when the Knox Lumber Company opened a mill there.
East Mayfield was incorporated as a municipality on
January 8, 1919, following an election in which fifty-five people voted for incorporation with none opposed. In 1922, the mill along with Knox timber holdings was sold to the Temple Lumber Company.
By 1930, East Mayfield had a population of 1,179 with most of the town's adults employed at the lumber company.
Temple Lumber Company continued to operate the mill until 1937 when it was destroyed by fire. Due to the rapid depletion of timber on the company's land, the mill was never rebuilt and the town went into decline. On
November 20, 1939, East Mayfield residents voted to disincorporate the town.
Today, the area once known as East Mayfield forms the southwestern portion of Hemphill.
