Henry J. Lutcher. The lure of land drew the Pennsylvania lumberman and his partner, G.B. Moore, to Texas in the 1870s. Lutcher and Moore constructed a "state-of-the-art" sawmill at Orange and purchased timberland on both sides of the Sabine River. The two later built three railroads: the Gulf, Sabine, and Red River; the Mississippi and Ponchartrain; and the Orange and Northwestern.
