Raleigh is at the intersection of Farm roads 667 and 744, in northwest Navarro County. Its first settlers were the Meredith clan, who came from Mississippi in 1873; like others they were fleeing the devastated South after the Civil War. A Raleigh post office was established in 1900 but was moved to Frost in 1904. In 1906 Raleigh had one school with thirty-nine students and one teacher. During the 1930s the settlement had a church, a school, and a number of scattered dwellings. From 1933 to 1969 Raleigh reported a population of twenty. The community appeared on later highway maps and was still listed in 1990.
