STANGER SPRINGS, TEXAS. Stanger Springs, a farming community on Farm Road 279 just off State Highway 64, fourteen miles southeast of Canton in southeastern Van Zandt County, had a school by 1890. In 1905 the school reached an enrollment of fifty-six; by the 1950s it had been consolidated with a larger school district. The 1936 county highway map showed a church at the townsite; a 1965 map showed the church, a business, and scattered dwellings. No population statistics were available for the community.
