Welcome to Buna, a charming town nestled in the heart of Southeast Texas. Known for its warm hospitality, Buna offers a perfect blend of small-town charm and modern conveniences.

In the late 1800s, Buna was prominent in the lumber industry but in the early 1900s, the towns economy was solidified when the Orange and Northwestern Railway linked the logging towns of Orange and Buna together by railway. Not only was logging important in the area, but so was (and still is) farming. The Withers Family played a large roll in the farming industry. They also built a ferry operation between 3 counties. The Withers homestead is a historical location in the city that is still owned and maintained by family.

In 1953 the Volunteer Fire Department was founded using only money from community donations and fundraisers such as cake walks and a beauty pageant. In 1958, the fire department and chamber of commerce came together and expanded the pageant idea to a commuithy festival. In 1973, The Redbud Festival was born. The Redbud Festival is an annual festival held in the spring , usually March. It was named after the beautiful Redbud trees that blooom at the time the festival is held. Carnival rides, vendors, a dance and a rodeo are a few pieces of the Redbud Festival. The real highlight is the Miss Buna Pageant. Contestants of the pageant sell ads to locals and are sponsored by local businesses as a way to raise funds for the fire department. This is definitely a source of pride and tradition for the small town.

Buna’s close proximity to larger cities like Beaumont and Houston also means you can enjoy the best of both worlds – the tranquility of small-town living with a few amenities of a big city just a short drive away. Need some retail therapy? Stroll the variety of local shops and boutiques where you can find unique treasures and support local artisans. Don’t forget to go visit the Polka Dot House!! The home was built in the 1940s and painted with polka dots! Well, the dots, although changed, never went away! Mr. O’Dell bought the house in the 1940s. His wife wanted to paint it white and he wanted to paint it blue…..so white with blue polka dots it is!! The house now serves as a gift shop.

This small town is a warm and welcoming community that embraces both tradition and progress. Come and experience the hidden gem of Southeast Texas – Buna awaits your arrival! Give me a call and let me help you make Buna, Tx home!
