BURROW, TEXAS. Burrow is near State Highway 66 fifteen miles southwest of Greenville in extreme west central Hunt County. The settlement, established in 1886 as a stop on the Missouri, Kansas and Texas line (which began building into the area in 1880), was named for W. T. Burrow, a local landowner. By 1899 a post office had opened there; it served the community until 1923. In 1915 Burrow reported a population of sixty and had a church and a school. By the mid-1920s it reported a population of forty and three businesses. Burrow's population was reported as seventy-five from the mid-1940s through the mid-1960s, after which no population figures were available for the town.
