History in a Pecan Shell

For a sizable town (Texas standards), Corinth has little history. It dates from 1880 when the railroad (the Dallas and Wichita) built through. The town’s entry in the Handbook of Texas lists these few facts and the various populations over the years but only since 1970. From a mere 461 people in 1970, Corinth was near Interstate Highway 35 and as a result, grew alongside the neighboring towns. A few families continue to farm the land that they have owned for generations, but most residents commute to work in Denton or the Metroplex.
