Stoneburg Texas

Stoneburg sat at the intersection of U.S. Route 81 and Farm to Market Road 1806 in east central Montague County. Bowie Lake is 2 miles southwest of the town. The town developed after the construction of the Chicago, Rock Island, and Texas Railway between Fort Worth, Texas and Salina, Kansas in 1893. The town's proximity to Bowie, however, limited the prospect of major growth and the population never surpassed 150. Its post office, opened in 1893, closed in 1954.
