Board

Board, a farming community on Board Creek three miles south of Pursley in southwestern Navarro County, was probably established in the early 1880s. A post office opened there in 1886, and by the turn of the century a school was in operation; in 1906 the school enrolled eighty-eight. The town, however, was in decline. The post office closed in 1904, and by the mid-1930s Board no longer appeared on highway maps.
