Aubrey, Texas
Aubrey Texas History:  
When the Texas and Pacific Railroad arrived in the area in 1881, the existing community was known as Ornego, Ornega or Onega. The name was unpopular so the name Aubrey was chosen by drawing names from a hat. The Aubrey post office opened that same year. The town founder is considered to be L.N. Edwards, a Civil War veteran from Alabama. After an 1887 fire destroyed the business district, the community rebuilt on the opposite side of the railroad tracks on lots donated by Mr. Edwards. In 1920 the town had approximately 700 residents; cotton was the main crop. Cotton was eventually replaced by peanuts. Today Aubrey is a horse ranching center. Aubrey is located at the intersection of U.S. 377 and FM 428, approximately 2 miles south of Lake Ray Roberts, 5 miles northwest of Lewisville Lake, 14.4 miles northeast of Denton, 15 miles southeast of Sanger, 7 miles south of Pilot Point, 18.7 miles northeast of Prosper, 14.4 miles northwest of Little Elm, and 26 miles north of Lewisville, Texas.
