History of Lavon, TX
In the mid 1850s, the rich soils of the Blackland Prairie and the water provided by Bear Creek attracted settlers. The St. Louis, Arkansas and Texas Railway laid tracks through the area in 1888.
The community adopted the name Lavon in honor of Lavon Thompson, the son of E. C. Thompson, who operated the town’s post office, established in 1888.
The flag stop, on what became the St. Louis Southwestern Railway of Texas in the early 1890s, served as a commercial center for farmers and increased the population of Lavon from an estimated 25 in the late 1880s to 300 by 1910.
The population of Lavon remained near 200 through the 1930s and 1940s, and in 1940 five businesses served its residents. These population and business figures varied only slightly between 1940 and 1980, despite the construction of Lavon Lake in 1952–53 (2 miles west).
The lake brought boaters, fishermen, and picnickers to replace farmers as the most frequent visitors to the community. In 1980 the newly incorporated Lavon had 1 business serving 306 residents. In 1990 the population was 303. The population grew to 387 by 2000. Lavon’s population was 2,228 in 2010.
