FROSA, TEXAS. Frosa, just off Farm Road 1245 fourteen miles northwest of Groesbeck in central Limestone County, was first named when a post office was established in the community in 1877 with Frederick P. Morey as postmaster. At that time farming operations had moved from sandy areas nearby to the blackland surrounding Frosa, and the community had two churches, a gin, a school, and several businesses. It is evidently named for Josť Frosa, a landowner who settled on Christmas Creek in the early 1850s. By 1884 the settlement had seventy residents and a steam gristmill and cotton gin. Eight years later the population is reported to have reached 300, a flour mill was in operation, and farmers were raising hay and grain, in addition to cotton. Submitted by: Andre Nepreneaux
