Watson was twenty-one miles northeast of Clarksville in northeastern Red River County. A post office was established there in 1884 with S. E. Watson as postmaster. In 1890 the community had a population of twenty-five and two years later a population of 100. The post office was discontinued in 1907, and by 1936 the community was no longer in existence.
