Kirby Lumber Company

Highrise Tower

Recommended Posts

I researched John Kirby this week. Amazing guy with so much Houston background.  The Kirby Lumber Company was started in the 1920s.

I found this awesome write up about the Kirby Lumber Company and wanted to share.  I searched HAIF and found only one or two mentions of KLC.


Going north on Highway 59, some 11 miles, you come to Silsbee. The same air of progress, improvement, and modernity which prevailed at Voth is found at Silsbee, too.


Traveling still further north on Highway No. 59, we come to Kirby's greatest operation the Bessmay mill.
