Deanville is an unincorporated community in Burleson County. It was first populated in the late 1840s by Horatio Chriesman, who came from Washington County. Deanville was named after James L. Dean, who opened a general store in 1872. Five years later, a post office located inside Dean’s Store was established. By 1884, the community had two churches, a cotton gin, a gristmill, and a steam engine. In 1913, the Houston and Texas Central Railway reached the town. Six years later, the First State Bank was organized and the town soon became the financial hub of the community. In addition, Deanville became the trading center for the southwestern part of the county in the early 1990s. Cotton was the major cash crop for many years; but, the town also had numerous businesses.
