PRIMROSE, TEXAS (Tarrant County). Primrose, ten miles southwest of Fort Worth, once served as a community center and rail station for farmers and ranchers of southwestern Tarrant County. It developed after the arrival of the St. Louis and San Francisco Railway in the late 1870s. The population remained well under fifty. In 1990 Primrose still appeared on highway maps as a rail stop on the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway, though no organized community existed at the site.
