EDGEWORTH, TEXAS. Edgeworth is on South Elm Creek and Farm Road 2184, fourteen miles southeast of Temple near the Milam county line in southeastern Bell County. A post office was established there in 1894, and in 1896 the community included a Baptist church, a drugstore, a doctor, and a blacksmith shop. The post office closed in 1904, and the population had declined to ten by 1933. In 1947 the community had revived somewhat and had two businesses and sixty inhabitants, but it had lost its business establishments and had declined to twenty inhabitants by 1964. In 2000 the population was still estimated at twenty.
