Josephine, Texas

Josephine was established in 1888 when the tracks of the St. Louis, Arkansas and Texas Railway reached the area.

People followed cattle trails across the prairies on horseback and in covered wagons to bring in supplies from Caddo Mills and Greenville in Hunt County, and from Terrell in Kaufman County. In 1889, the Cotton Belt passenger train ran through Josephine to Dallas. It took settlers to the first Dallas Fair.

Josephine is served by the Community Independent School District.

Farmersville originated in 1849 as a settlement on the Jefferson-McKinney Road, and near Republic of Texas National Road.

Institutions from the 1880s that are still in operation include the Farmersville Times, which is the oldest newspaper in Collin County, and the First Bank.

On June 15, 1945, Audie Murphy, the most decorated soldier of World War II, came home to a hero's welcome in Farmersville. Thousand's filled the square to listen to a speech given by him, and the event was noted in the July 16, 1945 edition of Life Magazine. A Texas Historical Commission plaque notes the event on the square.

The fertile Blackland Prairie and water from Bear Creek attracted settlers to the area in the mid-1850’s. The St. Louis, Arkansas and Texas Railway laid tracks through the area in 1888.

TODAY, Lavon is on the verge of explosive growth, largely due to the introduction of the Grand Heritage housing development project, which will introduce an estimated 1900 new homes over the next seven years.
