Joyce

Joyce, near Maud off present-day U.S. Highway 67 fourteen miles southwest of Texarkana in south central Bowie County, was probably first settled after the Civil War. At its height around 1900 it had a store, a church, and a few houses. When Wright Patman Lake was constructed in the mid-1950s, much of the area was inundated, and the site was abandoned.

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.
