Farm to Market Road 1892 (FM 1892) runs about .88 miles (1.42 km) from east of Frankston, Texas north, then east, to a boat ramp just west of the dam at Lake Palestine.

Route description[edit]

FM 1892 has no local street names. Rural for the most part, the landscape along the road includes rolling hills of alternating open pastures and trees. The southern portion of Lake Palestine can be seen by those traveling northbound on most of the road.

Some time after 1962 (when FM 1892 was commissioned), was when the damming and formation of Lake Palestine took place. The road serves no towns, but does connect the southern portion of Lake Palestine to the busy US 175, in the northeast part of Anderson County. One county road and one dam-area access road both intersect FM 1892, connecting more of the surrounding countryside by the lake.

History[edit]

FM 1892 was originally designated in 1951 on a route from US 281 to the Wilson County line; this route was transferred to FM 536 in 1953. FM 1892 was redesigated in 1952 on a route from Sisterdale south towards Boerne; this route was extended to run from US 87 to RM 473 to Sisterdale to a point 5 miles (8.0 km) north by 1960, when it was transferred to RM 1376. The current FM 1892 was designated in 1962.

Major intersections[edit]

The route is in northeastern Anderson County at the south end of Lake Palestine.
