It’s one of those towns. You know, a town that callers are likely to contact George Nory. Ghost stories are told and written.
When you first come into Fate it appears as a newly developed community with a contempoary water tower and cookie cutter homes. I am not fond of those kinds of neighborhoods myself, but there are some subdivisions with what appears to be custom homes. Change is apparent in this town, a little bit of old with a whole lot of new.
East of Dallas, take the 551 exit off the 30 and head north about a mile and you are in downtown. A few small businesses line the roadway and intersection and this park is just a few yards north. As with many little agricultural towns still surviving, a train makes its way though each day.
I had to work here yesterday and packed my camera in case I discovered something unique. I didn’t find much in Fate except for an aged intersection of businesses and the local grocier. This is unlike Farmersville or Caddo Mills. But I was not there long enough to talk to anyone. You can find a bit of history right here.
