McCurley was two miles southeast of the town of Lake Dallas in Denton County. It was named for the McCurley brothers, who settled there in the 1850s. A school district probably existed as early as the 1880s. In 1936 McCurley had a rural school and a separate school for Blacks. The community was submerged by the waters of Lewisville Lake in the 1950s. In 1984 a Texas Historical Commission marker for the McCurley Cemetery was placed in nearby Lewisville.
