Raleigh, a small rural community in Fannin County, was established during the 1830s. It derived its name from that of Raleigh, North Carolina, the hometown of its founder, John G. Jouitt. Raleigh was incorporated in 1839 and had a post office by the next year. By 1850, however, it had ceased to exist as an organized 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.
