Many people have come and gone since the beginning of this pioneer community!
Now it is nothing more than a ghost town with a few survivors huddled in the old township. The streets (which were never paved or identified) are now country trails, smoothed occasionally by the county.I give Special Thanks to John Limmer for his research and efforts in bringing us this wealth of information about Cross Cut and for his permission to display his work here. I hope to eventually have his whole book on this site. He has this comment:

I think you should know, and maybe you already do, I undertook that task compiling a history ofCross Cut for two reasons,and two reasons only: first, to keep yet another small Texas town from following the path to historical oblivion taken by so many others, once vibrant but now abandoned and forgotten little settlements like Cross Cut scattered throughout this great state; and, two,to honor the memory of one of the finest men I have had the unique and fulfilling pleasure of knowing - that being Carl Chambers.
