Newgulf (or New Gulf) is an unincorporated community in Wharton County, Texas, United States. Newgulf, founded as a company town for Texas Gulf Sulphur Company, once boasted a population of over 1,500, but today is little more than a ghost town. Some downtown buildings remain as well as a few company houses, the country club clubhouse, and the massive twin smokestacks and building shell from the sulphur mine, which provide a glimpse of the town's history. Newgulf's functioning elementary school is part of the Boling Independent School District.
