About Vidor

Located near the scenic Neches River, the City of Vidor, in Orange County, was incorporated in 1960 and became a home rule city in 1967. Vidor takes its name from Charles Shelton Vidor of Galveston, a co-founder of the Miller-Vidor Timber Co. on the site of the present city. Lumber was the community’s chief industry from 1913 to 1924 when the lumber company was moved to Lakeview. Steady growth followed and by the 1940’s, many Vidorians were employed in the petro-chemical industry of Jefferson and Orange counties.


Vidor is located in the northwestern part of Orange County where vast acreage is available for industry, commercial enterprises and smaller businesses. Much of the land is accessible to the Neches, in fact many acres actually front on the river.

Vidor is a full service community with a diverse number of small businesses.
