About The City of Josephine
Josephine was established in 1888, when the tracks of the St. Louis, Arkansas and Texas Railway reached the area. It was named in honor of the daughter of J. C. Hubbard of, who donated land to the Cotton Belt Railroad Company for the town site.
People followed cattle trails across the prairies on horseback and in covered wagons, to bring in supplies from Caddo Mills and Greenville, in Hunt County, and Terrell in Kaufman County. In 1889 the Cotton Belt passenger train ran through Josephine to Dallas. It took settlers to the first Dallas Fair.
