History in a Pecan Shell

The community takes its name from Dr. Robert Faught. The fledgling community had a mere 20 people before acquiring a post office in 1893 with Dr. Faught becoming postmaster.

The post office closed its doors in 1905 although two businesses continued into the 1930s. A church, school and cemetery remained on maps.

Proximity to Paris hurt Faught but the community still had a business as of 1990 and a population estimated to be 25.

Faught, Texas Forum

Subject: Faught Texas information
Regarding the population of Faught, if Faught is considered to be comprised only of the area between the two state signs, there has never been a population of 100. To this day, many people claim to live in Faught that are about a mile or so outside the two state signs. Due to the explosive development of highway 195, there have been many huge houses constructed in “Faught” in the past 10 years or so and the total population is well over 100.

The Army training camp that did open near Faught and Paris Texas at the start of WWII was Camp Maxey which still exists as a National Guard site. Camp Maxey not only trained thousands of soldiers, it was also a German POW site. - August 04, 2016
