CHERRY MOUND, TEXAS. Cherry Mound is on Farm Road 1753 some ten miles northeast of Sherman in northeastern Grayson County. Settlement at the site began in the mid-1850s, when the David Cherry family arrived and settled on a rise that provided a view of the countryside. In the 1940s the community there had a school, a church, two businesses, and a number of scattered dwellings. Cherry Mound served area farmers and cattle ranchers as a school and church community. In 1988 Cherry Mound was still named on the county highway map, though no structures were shown at the site.
