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!

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!
