5 Lufkin Intersections On Santa’s Naughty List
Driving around in Lufkin is always interesting because of these intersections. Roads come together in many strange ways.
Someone once commented to me that the City of Lufkin must have forgotten to pay a surveyor in its past. The streets in our town come from all kinds of different angles.
I am glad that Santa flies around in a sleigh and doesn't use roads. Like many visitors to Lufkin, he would quickly get turned around.
What Is In A Name
There is one continuous road in Lufkin that has three different names. College Drive turns into Raguet Street, and then becomes Angelina Avenue. Many streets have two names like how Southwood Drive turns into Bynum.
What do all of these roads have in common? They were not a part of any plans for the city. 80 years ago these roads were on the outskirts of town.
Where Morales restaurant stands in Lufkin on South First Street was the last gas station leaving town. Now it seems like it's in the middle of town.
Lufkin was a boomtown in its early history. First it was lumber and then steel. Each one of these booms set about more building.
Places that were located outside of town were suddenly inside the city limits. Single-lane, dirt roads became highways. Since houses were already built, they just stuck to what they were already named and how they ran.
The sporadic growth gave rise to some of the most interesting intersections you will see anywhere. Let's see if one of these intersections is near you.
