Circle is on Farm Road 2962 eight miles east of Rusk in eastern Cherokee County. The site was probably first settled after the Civil War. A local post office operated from 1898 to 1905. In the mid-1930s Circle had several stores, a church, and a number of houses. After World War II many residents left the area, but in the early 1990s a church, a school, a store, and a few scattered houses still remained. Though the community was still shown on county highway maps in 2000, no population estimates were available.
