Red Oak, Texas belongs to Ellis County as an incorporated city that stands at an elevation of 607 feet. The area is found on the Lancaster geological survey map, and holds a population of 10,205. The land of the city spans across 14.97 square miles, with population density of around 682 people per square mile.
Red Oak is a great place for arts and culture, offering the Texas Historic Preservation Office, several national historic landmarks, and publication that spreads the history of the area to those unfamiliar.
What most brings a great bit of attention to Red Oak is the filing of “True Stories” shot in the area, which was a film created by David Byrne released during ’86. The homes of the area can be quite diverse from each other, offering choices for everyone, with a low cost of living that allows homes to be purchased for under $100,000 – but that doesn’t mean the city is void of homes ranging well above that cost of which there are several.
