Lavender is on State Highway 164 seven miles west of Groesbeck in west central Limestone County. It is said to have been named for a pioneer family. A post office opened at Lavender in 1900 with Virgil B. Wilson as postmaster; the office was discontinued four years later, and mail for the community was sent to Groesbeck. In the early 1930s Lavender reported three businesses and twenty-five residents. County highway maps showed two businesses and several residences at the site in the late 1940s, but only the name appeared on maps in the 1980s. Lavender was still listed as a community in 1990.
