Campti is on Farm Road 414 eight miles northeast of Center in northeastern Shelby County. It was founded about 1880 and named for Campti, Louisiana, the hometown of many of the early residents. Its post office was established in 1902 and discontinued in 1908. The town had a store, a church, a cemetery, and several houses in 1946, but by 1988 only the church, the cemetery, and a few widely scattered houses remained.

Adapted from the official Handbook of Texas, a state encyclopedia developed by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA). It is an authoritative source of trusted historical records.
