Morris County is a long, vertical strip of land located in northeast Texas. The county is the fourth smallest county in the state based on total area (259 square miles). The population of the county is a little under 13,000 based on statistics from the 2010 census. It was once a “dry county” in Texas that prohibited the sale of alcohol yet has since become “partially wet”. The county seat is Daingerfield.
Morris County was established in 1875. The area was settled primarily by Europoean-American farmers and planters. Cotton was and remains a steady crop in Morris County. Agriculture as a whole is the primary industry in the rural, remote part of East Texas.
Morris County is located near a number of important highways. Interstate 30 (I-30) ventures through the northern portion of the county. It travels east and west. I-30 reaches Dallas and Fort Worth to the west, and the Texas and Arkansas state border to the east. Other important highways in the region include U.S. Highway 67, U.S. Highway 259, and several Texas highways and farm routes.
The county is serviced by three different school districts: Daingerfield-Lone Star Independent School District, Pewitt Independent School District, and Hughes Springs Independent School District. All three school districts also operate in other counties, with Hughes Springs ISD largely in Cass County. Morris County has a branch of Northeast Texas Community College in Naples.
Daingerfield is the largest town in Morris County. The population of the small town was 2,560 in the 2010 census. Growth is minimal in one of the more remote counties in all of Texas. Daingerfield is the birthplace of historian Ernest Wallace. Also, the bluegrass song “Old Dangerfield” by Bill Monroe is named after the community. Daingerfield High School is the most prominent school in the area. The 3A public high school is known for its high school football program which has won several state championships. The 1983 team is considered one of the most dominant in Texas high school football history.
The other communities in Morris County include Hughes Springs (population 1,760), Lone Star (population 1,580), Naples (population 1,380), and Omaha (population 1,025). Hughes Springs is mostly in Cass County.
Morris County is known for having several big bodies of water in and around it. Ellison Creek Reservoir is in the southern part of the county, right out Lone Star. Lake ‘O the Pines is also directly south of the county. Berry Farm Park and Wright Patman Lake are within a short drive.
