Boren was on Sixmile Creek two miles southeast of Carthage in south central Panola County. It grew up around a mill established in the 1880s. For a time a railroad spur connected Boren to the main rail line in Carthage. A Boren post office operated from 1893 until 1905, when the mail was sent to Carthage. In 1896 Boren had a general store, a number of scattered houses, and an estimated population of 200. A school was in operation there by 1900. Most of the residents apparently moved to Carthage, however, and by the mid-1930s Boren was no longer shown on county highway maps.
