Edgewood, Texas

Because of a dispute between Canton and Wills Point over the location of the Van Zandt County seat, Canton citizens wanted a shipping point other than Wills Point. They built a nine-mile road to a siding on the T&P Railroad in 1878, and Edgewood was born there. In 1890 a group from Mississippi settled in the town, and by 1915 the population had grown to 850.
