STONY POINT, TEXAS. Stony Point, a school community in Collin County, received its name from the white boulders projecting from the ground nearby. The Stony Point School was operating as a free school by 1880 and was still in existence by 1900 but closed soon after. The community was gradually abandoned after the school closed.
