The town was first established in 1895 when the Gulf, Beaumont and Kansas City railroad reached the site. It was first named Kirby for John Henry Kirby, a lumber businessman who intended to use the site for building a facility to market his lumber. The post office was established the same year, but the name was changed to Kirbyville when a town already called Kirby was discovered.
The City of Kirbyville is served by the Kirbyville Consolidated Independent School District and home to the Kirbyville High School Wildcats.
