Acol was a boxcar post office of the Angelina County Lumber Company; the name of the office is an acronym of the company name. The Acol post office is associated with a site on the Southern Pacific Railway in northern Tyler County four miles northeast of Colmesneil. It served the lumber company's logging camps in Angelina, Tyler, and Polk counties during the 1930s and 1940s. When the office needed to be moved, it was hooked to a locomotive and rolled to its new location.
