Bois d'Arc is at the intersection of Farm Road 860 and State Highway 19, fifteen miles northwest of Palestine in northwestern Anderson County. In the 1930s the settlement had a church, a single business, a number of dwellings scattered along the road, and a district school. In 1932 the Bois d'Arc school enrolled forty-five. By 1955 it had been consolidated with the Montalba school. In 1985 Bois d'Arc was a small crossroads community with two businesses, a church, and several homes. The population was ten in 2000.
