Welcome to Vidor, Texas. The city was named after lumberman Charles Shelton Vidor, owner of the Miller-Vidor Lumber Company and father of director King Vidor.
. In 1924 the Miller-Vidor Lumber Company moved north to Lakeview, just north of Vidor in search of timber. A small percentage of the population remained, and became a bedroom community for surrounding refining complexes in Beaumont, and Port Arthur. Come, and explore Vidor today! We have Sports, Music, Activities, Conferences, Meetings, and much more! Vidor Texas Events.
