STRACENER, TEXAS. Stracener, a farming community off U.S. Highway 271 four miles north of Gilmer in north central Upshur County, was settled sometime before 1900, when a school was in operation there. By 1906 the school had an enrollment of fifty-five black students. In the mid-1930s the community comprised the school, a store, and number of houses. After World War II the school and the store closed, and by the mid-1960s only a few widely scattered houses remained.
