Situated between Gainesville and Whitesboro, Texas is a town of not much more than a few horse and cattle ranches and a lot of manufactured homes. You won’t find major shopping here and I don’t even believe there is a gas station. Gainesville is only a few miles west so no worry if you find yourself lost and hungry in Woodbine. The biggest structure in town is the elementary school, and a nice piece of property it is since they just spent mega bucks in upgrades and improvements. This school (aka Radware) serves Woodbine and Collinsville which is located north of the 82.
On my way to take feed to my horses, the sun was warm and in late day and I knew the shadows of the afternoon would be found on the pallet. I drove on some roads I had never been on looking for something else I had not seen at the intersection of the 678 and the 3164.
According to Handbook of Texas, Woodbine was the first Cooke County community to receive rail service and a train depot. I probably have more family information but that is a different subject.
