Pilot Point is well known for its horse ranches, including several world and national show horse champions. It is situated at the junction of U.S. Highway 377 and Farm Road 455, eighteen miles north of Denton in northeastern Denton County. The city has a total area of 3.4 square miles and it was platted on Christmas Day in 1853. The town got its name from being the highest point in the area, thus an observation point for crossing the Trinity River. The wagon pilots nicknamed it "the Pilot's Point" long before the town existed. One of the first buildings during its foundation was on the north side, a log building, home to the Star Drug Store operated by Dr. R.W. Eddleman and Alexander Cook, who came by covered wagon in 1852 from Missouri. A post office was opened in 1855 with James D. Walcott, the owner of Pilot Point's first general store, served as postmaster. On October 8, 1866, Pilot Point was incorporated, unincorporated in 1878, and reincorporated in 1906. In 2017, the town reached a population of 4,342.
