History

Historic SH 19

SH 19 was one of the original 26 Texas state highways proposed in 1917. The original proposal was for it to run from the Texas/Oklahoma border north of Paris to Houston. By 1922 it had been extended south, with a terminus in Freeport. By 1933, SH 19 was pared back significantly, with the section north of Alba transferred to SH 24 and SH 154. By 1939, the section south of Palestine had been removed, but was extended north back over SH 154 to Sulphur Springs. In 1960, it was extended northward to its original starting point of Paris and again to the south to Huntsville, replacing SH 45.

Historic SH 19A

SH 19A was a spur route of SH 19 that was originally planned in 1919, splitting off at Angleton and travelling to Palacios. By 1933, the route had been renumbered as SH 58.
