DEXTRA, TEXAS. Dextra, just off Farm Road 1648 twenty-one miles northwest of Nacogdoches in northwestern Nacogdoches County, was settled before 1900. In the mid-1930s the community had a school, a church, and several stores. After World War II many of its residents moved away, but as late as the mid-1960s the community had a store and two churches. In the early 1990s Dextra was a dispersed farming community.
