Sycamore is on State Highway 63 four miles west of the Sabine River and seventy miles northeast of Beaumont in northeast Newton County. It had a cemetery and a one-room combination school and church in the early twentieth century. The school had two teachers in 1922. The settlement, referred to by long-time residents as "Old Syc," dwindled as agriculture in the area became less profitable. The school was consolidated first with that of Plum Creek and in 1943 with the Burkeville Independent School District. The Sycamore community sponsors an annual homecoming each May.
