Long Prairie

Long Prairie, on Farm Road 309 five miles south of Kerens in southeastern Navarro County, was established before 1900. A school was in operation there by 1900, and in 1906 it had an enrollment of thirty-seven. In the mid-1930s the small community comprised two churches, a cemetery, and a number of houses. The school was consolidated with the Round Prairie school and subsequently with that of Kerens. By the mid-1960s only a church and cemetery and a few widely scattered houses remained at the site. In the early 1990s Long Prairie was a dispersed rural community for which no population estimates were available.
