KRISTENSTAD, TEXAS. Kristenstad is twelve miles southeast of Granbury in southeastern Hood County. It was established by John B. Kristenstad about 1915 as a Norwegian settlement in the De Cordova Bend of the Brazos River. Though a post office operated there from 1928 until sometime after 1930, the community remained largely undeveloped. Twenty persons lived in Kristenstad in 1936. In 1990 it had a few houses and a cemetery.
