POOLE, TEXAS. Poole is at the junction of Farm roads 514 and 2081, eight miles northwest of Emory in northeastern Rains County. It was settled around the time of the Civil War and named for an early settler. In the mid-1930s the settlement had a church, a school, and a number of scattered dwellings. After World War II the school closed, and in 1990 Poole was a dispersed community with a reported fifty residents.
