Tyler County Historical Commission

Tyler County is located in beautiful southeastern Texas near the Louisiana border. Woodville, the county seat and largest town, is 60 miles north of Beaumont and 90 miles northeast of Houston. Tyler County’s population is approximately 17,000.

All Tyler County communities collaborate yearly to stage a spring celebration held on the last two weekends in March and the first weekend in April. This includes the Festival of The Arts, held at Heritage Village, followed by Western Weekend for trailriders and the Tyler County Dogwood Festival, both involving extensive parades in Woodville and other activities. A county fair is held the first weekend of October. Visitors to the county come not only for these events but for the varied flora and fauna of the Big Thicket National Preserve, the "biological crossroads of North America."
