Pilot Point, Texas

Pilot Point was settled near the site of a large post oak grove which was a prominent landmark for pioneer travelers and a lookout point for the Native Americans. Dripping Spring, just north of the grove, encouraged settlement, as did the rich rolling black land prairies. The public square of Pilot Point was plotted and laid out by George Newcomb on Christmas Day, 1854. Goods were hauled from Jefferson to supply the needs of the community until the Texas and Pacific built to the city.

Today, Pilot Point is the center for agriculture and varied businesses. A city-wide effort to preserve buildings on the Historic Courthouse Square, built between 1870s and 1890s, has resulted in Pilot Point being chosen as a Texas Main Street City. Visitors can find antique shops, cafes and the historic City Hall downtown. A monument has also been erected at the site of the founding of the Church of the Nazarene.
