New Birthright

New Birthright, a farming community a mile west of Birthright and nine miles northeast of Sulphur Springs in north central Hopkins County, developed around the time of World War II, when residents from old Birthright moved there to be closer to the junction of State highways 19 and 154 and Farm Road 71. In the late 1940s the community had several businesses, a church, a cemetery, and a number of scattered houses. By the early 1960s only the church, the cemetery, and a few houses remained. During the late 1980s New Birthright was a dispersed rural community.

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.
