The City of Pineland, Texas located in southwestern Sabine County along U.S. Highway 96 and the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway, has roots in the early 20th century timber industry. It began as a sawmill and lumber camp on the Gulf, Beaumont, and Great Northern Railway in 1902. It was initially named John Adam's Mill before adopting Pineland in 1904. The Garrison Norton Lumber Company, which took over in 1906, was succeeded by the Temple Lumber Company in 1910 under Thomas L. L. Temple. At the same time, the lumber industry remained central to Pineland's economy. By the 1960s, the town had diversified with a hospital, library, bank, and supermarket. The population, which was 1,100 in 1987, decreased to 882 by 1990 and slightly rose to 980 by 2000, reflecting the town's evolving dynamic while still retaining its foundational industry.
