Primrose, on U.S. Highway 69 fourteen miles southeast of Rusk in southern Cherokee County, was probably first settled around the time of the Civil War. A church and school were established there by 1900. The school was consolidated with the Alto district in 1934, but as late as the mid-1930s Primrose had a church and a number of houses. After World War II many residents left the area, and in the 1980s only a church and a few scattered dwellings remained.
