Crossville, four or five miles east of Copperas Cove on the Coryell-Bell county line, was named for early Bell County settler James M. Cross. Families began moving into the area before the Civil War. A post office opened there in 1872 with Martin W. Warren as postmaster, but closed in 1881. In 1880 the community had a population of forty. The townsite and area farms and ranches were absorbed by Camp Hood (see FORT HOOD) in the early 1940s, and most Crossville residents relocated in Copperas Cove.
