Grayson TX Real Estate & Homes for Sale

Grayson County is a county located on the Texas-Oklahoma border, 72 miles north of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Grayson was founded in March of 1846, and named after Republic of Texas attorney general Peter Wagener Grayson. Originally inhabited by Tonkawa, Ionis, and Kichai tribes who traded with Spanish and French colonists along the Red River, the county would come into existence following the founding of Peters Colony in 1840, carved from land taken from Fannin County by the Texas State Legislature.

Grayson County Parks and Attractions

Grayson County is home to the Red River and Lake Texoma. Lake Texoma is one of the largest reservoirs in the United States, created by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers between 1938 and 1944. Its close proximity to the Metroplex, as well as its massive 93,000-acre size, makes Lake Texoma a huge draw for tourists visiting the county; as many as 6 million visit the lake annually. The Red River, which feeds the lake, was once the U.S./Mexico border until the Texas Annexation and Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in the mid- to late 1840s.

Along Lake Texoma in the northwestern corner of Grayson County is the Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge, a haven for various migratory birds and other animals. Visitors to the refuge can visit throughout the year to hike, fish, hunt, and observe nature. Hagerman is within the confines of the Central Flyway, a north-south migratory route passing over the Great Plains from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico.

And of course, Grayson County is the birthplace of WWII five-star general and the 34th President of the United States—the first president to be born in Texas, no less—Dwight D. Eisenhower. Thus, you can visit the Eisenhower Birthplace State Historic Site in Denison, the preserved two-story home where he spent the first two years of his life before moving to Kansas.

Grayson County Schools

For families establishing their new homes with school-age children, Grayson County is home to 15 different independent school districts, including Sherman ISD, Denison ISD, and Tioga ISD. College-age children have their choice of two- and four-year colleges in the county, including Grayson College and Austin College.
