FORDS CORNER, TX

FORDS CORNER, TEXAS. Fords Corner is a rural residential community located at the junction of State Highway 21 and Farm Road 1 about seven miles southeast of San Augustine in northeastern San Augustine County. Named after the Ford family, the community was probably in existence in the early 1900s. For years a general store served both travelers and farmers in the area. By 2000 only dispersed homes remained, and Fords Corner had a population of thirty.
