Shirley

Shirley was a small farming community located on Farm Road 71 about ten miles northeast of Sulphur Springs in northern Hopkins County. This settlement probably began by the early 1900s. Highway maps in the 1930s show a school and scattered farms in the area. The community no longer appeared on maps by the 1990s. Another rural community in southwestern Hopkins County was named Sherley.

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.
