CROSS ROADS, TX (UPSHUR COUNTY)

CROSS ROADS, TEXAS (Upshur County). Cross Roads (Crossroads), eight miles southwest of Gilmer on the old Gilmer-Big Sandy highway in southwestern Upshur County, was probably established around 1900. In the mid-1930s it had a church, a school, and a number of houses. After World War II many of its residents moved away, and the school was consolidated with the Big Sandy school district. By the mid-1960s all that remained of the community was a few scattered houses, among them the Gage House, one of the oldest houses in the county. Nearby was the Lone Pilgrim Primitive Baptist Church.
