About Our City

The City of Kirbyville first incorporated in 1926, and according to the 2014 United States Census Bureau, currently has a population of 2,129 living within its approximate 2.4 mile city limit radius.   The town was first established in 1895 when the Gulf, Beaumont and Kansas City railroad reached the site. It was first named Kirby for John Henry Kirby, a lumber businessman who intended to use the site for building a facility to market his lumber. The post office was established the same year, but the name was changed to Kirbyville when a town already called Kirby was discovered.

Many of the early establishment buildings are still standing on Main Street full of historical value, including the Palace Theater which houses the infamous Country Music Show hosted by the Kirbyville Heritage Society every second Saturday of the month beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Popular destinations in Kirbyville include the Palace Theater, a Community Center, the Kirbyville Public Library, and two city owned parks, the Magnolia Park and the Beavis-Skinner Park, both of which host a number of exciting annual events including the Magnolia Festival, Fishing in the Park and Christmas in the Park.
