Crenshaw was four miles southeast of Barclay in southern Falls County. In the 1880s it was established as ranch headquarters for William Anderson Barclay and named for a friend of Barclay's called Crenshaw, who managed the local store and gin. A Crenshaw post office operated from 1903 until 1911. No evidence of the community was shown on county highway maps in the 1940s.

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.
