NORTH ELM, TEXAS. North Elm is near Farm Road 485 seven miles northwest of Cameron in northwestern Milam County. The community was named for nearby North Elm Creek. Mose Price, who moved to the area in 1876, organized a Baptist church at North Elm. The North Elm school had fifty-six students and one teacher in 1903. The school, the church, and a few scattered houses marked the community on county highway maps in the 1940s. The church became inactive in 1941, and no population estimates were available.
