Paluxy is an unincorporated community in Hood County, Texas, United States. Paluxy was named after the Paluxy River that runs through it. It was originally called “Pulltight” to describe the flow of the river and the difficulty in fording it by horseback or carriage. But then, the name had been used verbally so it appears in a text in a variety of misspellings (Baloxey, Poloxeyville, Paluxieville). This community is found on Farm to Market Road 51, fifteen miles southwest of Granbury. It was also part of Erath County until 1866 when Hood County was created. John Meek helped establish the community and the county and became one of the first four county commissioners. Without a railroad connection and being only 15 miles from the county seat, Paluxy never developed a business district and remained mostly agricultural. Also, the residents of Paluxy are served by the Hood County News and KPAR-AM radio, both out of nearby Granbury. It reached a population peak of 164, which is also a number also used for decades (1900-1970).
