Robertson

Robertson is on State Highway 62 twenty-eight miles northeast of Beaumont in southern Jasper County. The community grew up around the Orange and Northwestern Railway, which was converted from a logging tramline to a common carrier in 1902. By 1905 Robertson was the sole stop on the road between Maurice, in Orange County, and Buna. By 1918 several other stations and flag stops had been established, thus diminishing Robertson's importance. Highway maps of the mid-1980s do not show Robertson, although the Geographical Names and Information System continues to list the little community.
