PLENTITUDE, TEXAS. Plentitude (Plentitude Yard) was a rural community in northern Anderson County located on Brushy Creek ten miles north of Palestine. Settled by Anglo-Americans in the early 1830s, the area was the scene of several struggles between settlers and Indians. The site had a lumbering operation called Plentitude Yard from 1850 through the Civil War, and the community was granted a post office called Plentitude in 1850. The post office was closed in 1883, and Plentitude disappeared in the late nineteenth century.
