History & History Related Items

Crandall was founded in 1880 by the building eastward from Dallas of the Texas and New Orleans railway, then known as the Texas Trunk Line and the liberal donations of land by Reverend C.F. Crandall, who owned land on which the town is built.
The trunk line had been bought by the Southern Pacific System and the cotton crop of 1900 was a bumper, for this and other reasons the town took a new lease on life. A number of handsome business houses were erected and pretty cottage homes some of them more pretentious, dotted the before empty prairie.

Although a fast growing city, Crandall has remained a family community with energetic and involved citizens, an excellent school system and churches of many faiths. Crandall offers residents a convenient metropolitan location with easy access to employment, cultural and sports activities. The growth potential for Kaufman County is tremendous. The richness of the cotton fields has changed to pure gold in available land for commercial development projects.
