Verona is near Pilot Grove Creek eight miles northeast of McKinney in northeast Collin County. Settlement of the area began in the 1870s. The organization of the community began in the fall of 1872 when A. R. Womble built a general store to serve area farmers. Soon thereafter a gristmill, cotton gin, and school were established.
