Overton, Texas is a small city situated in two counties: Rusk and Smith. Straddling the Smith County line in northwestern Rusk County, Overton is located 16 miles northwest of Henderson. In addition to being situated in two different counties, Overton, TX is also located in two distinct Metropolitan Statistical Areas: Longview and Tyler, making these two larger cities logical extensions of any tourist’s visit to Overton. Covering a total of 6.8 square miles, the city of Overton is almost entirely located in Rusk County, with only a small portion of the town extending into Smith County.
Founded in 1873 by Frank Overton, an early settler who donated land for the townsite, Overton, TX soon became one of the principal shipping points for the first post-Civil War rail system in Rusk County: the International-Great Northern. The town’s population soon swelled as a result of the railroad’s bypassing three nearby towns – Belleview, Jamestown, and Rocky Mount – in favor of Overton, where it set up a station. Since people were eager to live near the rail line, they naturally gravitated toward the town. To sustain the town’s growing population, Frank Overton soon began encouraging businesses to move into the town by offering free lots to any Jamestown businessman who was willing to relocate to Overton. His creative plan worked and many did relocate, and soon a schoolhouse, a Baptist church, and Hubbard College were added to the growing township.
Overton’s population currently stands at 2,577 (according to the latest 2011 count), a modest figure compared to the town’s 1936 count, which had risen to 4,500, after the town had experienced a population explosion between 1931 and 1933 that initially saw its population swell from 426 to 3,000. The Great Depression had little effect on the town’s population; yet, by the end of World War II, its citizen count had dropped by half, to a mere 2,000. Today’s figure contributes to the intimate nature of this small, friendly, close-knit Texas community.
The McMillan Memorial Library is located in Overton, TX, and the town is also home to the annual Overton Bluegrass and Gospel Music Festival, held each June for the past 24 years.
