If it weren’t for this church and a stop sign at the 678 and the 106 I’d never know I was in Dexter. Are there even a hundred people there? Ranches are scattered throughout the region just south of the Red River. According to historical data, Dexter was named after a race horse. Not surprising really since one will pass many horse ranches to get to Dexter regardless of what route taken. Let me not forget to mention the cemeteries, two I believe dating back to the beginning of Dexter’s history. Many of the original business including a hotel and barber shop have since decayed and been carried off in memory. But the church remains and fortunately is still in use. As it should be.
Go to church!
I want to know about this race horse named Dexter.
