Harrisburg is on Farm Road 1738 and the Newton county line, ten miles northeast of Jasper in a heavily forested area of northeastern Jasper County. In 1909 it acquired a third-class county road to Horton, known as the Old Lumber Road. The improved transportation allowed local citizens greater access to the Gulf, Beaumont and Kansas City Railway. A post office, called Dryburg, served the community from 1912 until the late 1930s. Scattered buildings were marked at the site in 1984.
