Hemphill, Texas

Ask anyone who is fortunate enough to call Toledo Bend or Sam Rayburn "home" and you'll hear, "It's one of the best places to retire and the best place to live!" While Texas Real Estate spans for miles and miles, East Texans claim braggin' rights for the very best that The Lone Star State has to offer! Crystal blue skies, deep green pines and pristine lakes welcome you to the Texas Forest Country!

Add the aura of small town America where affordable living, quality education, community socials, friendly neighborhoods and evening strolls are the norm, and you'll know why Hemphill, located in Sabine County, Texas has been designated as a Certified Retirement Community!

Hemphill was founded in 1858, as the seat of Sabine County, a vast timber area. Today, Hemphill is a commercial center for lumber and the major gateway to the immense Toledo Bend Reservoir. A gallows, more than 80 years old, is still in place in the four-cell county jail.

This is our home and we can hardly wait to share it with you!
