Cross Roads is a town in Denton County. It was originally settled in 1846 and its earliest settlement was called Science Hill. In 1885, the Wildcat post office was opened at the site having George B. Thompson as postmaster. Seven years later, the community had three cotton gins, a general store, and several other establishments. However, the post office closed in 1905. The town was also referred to as Thompson’s Mill due to the water-powered mill that was built by D.M. Thompson on Wildcat Creek in 1871. Cross Roads had traced its origins towards the early 1890s. A brush arbor camp meeting of the Baptists was held at the point where the road from Athens to Wildcat Ferry and the road from Malakoff to Palestine crossed, thus named the location as “Cross Roads.” In the early twentieth century, the town had numerous gins, gristmills, and other businesses that supported the agricultural community thrived at Cross Roads.
