History in a Pecan Shell

The community is not as town per se and only came into existence in the early 1970s as FM 1960 was being developed from a two-lane blacktop road. It didnít incorporate and is described in the Handbook of Texas as ďa large subdivision [with] country clubs and golf courses in the vicinity of Cypress Creek." Outside of the housing, Champions is made up of strip shopping centers, retail businesses and restaurants.

Comparison with the Panhandle ghost town of Champion, Texas may be interesting for people who appreciate contrasts.
