Angelina County is a county located in the U.S. state of Texas. Angelina County was formed in 1846 from Nacogdoches County. As of 2000, the population was 80,130. Its county seat is Lufkin6. Angelina is named for a Hainai Native American woman who assisted early Spanish missionaries and was named Angelina by them. (See List of Texas county name etymologies.) Angelina County is no longer a dry county. However the cities of Burke, Diboll, Hudson, Huntington, and Zavalla are all pending status with the TABC local option to prohibit the sales of Beer and Wine. If this goes through, this will be the first time in history, a city or county that has voted to go "wet" will have gone back "dry." Which should spark up controversy in surrounding dry counties, such as "runner up" in size and dryness, Smith County, to the north. They know it's coming, it's only a matter of time.


According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 2,239 km² (864 sq mi). 2,076 km² (802 sq mi) of it is land and 163 km² (63 sq mi) of it (7.28%) is water.
