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.

Josephine Community Food Bank
City employees donate their time and effort towards running an active and ongoing food-bank. The goal is to supply both families and individuals that find themselves on a time of need within the greater Josephine area.
We are continually seeking donations of non perishable food and personal care products on an ongoing basis.
City efforts are supported by our local Girl Scout troops, food drives and general donations.
During this holiday season, we are seeking to include items that are of a holiday nature, frozen turkeys, hams, stuffing, cranberry sauce, green beans, yams, white potatoes, corn and bread rolls. Also something special and sweet would be an added gift.
The City also accepts financial donations for the food bank.
All donations can be made Monday-Friday 9am-4pm at city hall.
Please contact Ms. Robin Tiller (972) 843-8282 if you require further information.
