East Texas City
Old Aldridge Sawmill An Ghost Town
Boykin Springs Recreation Area
Alligators, herons, and bass attract hikers, birders, and fishermen to this community, located east of B.A. Steinhagen Lake and south of Lake Sam Rayburn. A trail in Boykin Springs Recreation Area leads to the unrestored ruins of the old Aldridge sawmill and ghost town. Once a thriving sawmill town, residents abandoned Aldridge in the 1920s after the native timber was depleted. Events include the Jasper Air Show in the fall, Azalea Festival in March, July 4 Celebration, Butterfly Festival in October and Christmas in the Park in November.
