The Preston Trail Chapter is located in Pottsboro, Texas, an hour north of Dallas. This area of Texas, near the Red River and beautiful Lake Texoma, boasts a rich, exciting history. Chapter members focus community efforts in Pottsboro and surrounding towns in Grayson County.

Our chapter, organized on December 10, 2011 by our first regent, Joy Vian Martin, was named in honor of William Gilwater Preston, a young commanding officer for the Republic of Texas, who was responsible for building a road from Preston to Austin, Texas. The road ran through present day Pottsboro. Originally surveyed in 1840, this road became one of the greatest cattle drive trails from Texas to Missouri and Kansas, and was the principal immigrant route into northern Texas.

We welcome prospective members and invite you to join us at a regular meeting. We meet the first Thursday of every month from 6:00-7:00 p.m. September - May except December. Contact us for specific meeting time and location information.
