Greenpond

Greenpond (Green Pond), on Farm Road 1567 some nine miles southeast of Sulphur Springs in southeastern Hopkins County, was settled by Robert S. Lanier in 1870. A Baptist church was organized there in 1895. After 1900 the community had a school, which in 1905 enrolled fifty-three students. In the mid-1930s Greenpond had a business, school, church, and cemetery. Its school was later transferred to Como, and by the mid-1980s the community had only the church and cemetery and a number of widely scattered houses.

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.
