Farm to Market Road 4, Farm Road 4, or FM 4 is a Texas state road that runs from Grandview north and west to Jacksboro. FM 4 was designated in March 1942. FM 4 is, as of 2012, one of the longest Farm to Market Roads in the state of Texas.
FM 4 begins at its southern terminus with Texas State Highway 81, in Grandview. FM 4 then proceeds through Grandview, and passes the Grandview Cemetery. FM 4 passes several small communities and several large farms before reaching the city of Cleburne. It passes through the Rose Hill Cemetery, before concurring with Texas State Highway 171/Texas State Highway 174. FM 4 then passes through downtown Cleburne, before reaching the end of the concurrency, just north of downtown. FM 4 then passes several small neighborhoods, and Cleburne Municipal Airport, before exiting Cleburne at its junction with US 67.
FM 4 then proceeds through rolling, hilly farmland of North Texas, passing a few small communities and concurring and intersecting with several other farm roads and county roads. FM 4 then proceeds through Acton, before passing through Granbury, Lipan, Santo, Palo Pinto, and reaching its northern terminus at Jacksboro.
The route was designated on March 26, 1942 between Santo and U.S. Highway 80, replacing Spur 40. The route was extended to Lone Camp later that day. The route was extended north to U.S. Highway 180 on September 6, 1945, replacing FM 130. The route was extended southeast to Granbury on October 23, 1949, replacing FM 7. On February 6, 1953, the route had been extended north to a road intersection south of the Brazos River, replacing FM 1193. On December 19, 1955, the route had been extended north across the river to Graford, replacing FM 1194. On December 20, 1984, it was extended north to Jacksboro, replacing a former route of FM 206. On February 25, 1985, it extended south to then U.S. Highway 81 (now SH 81) at Grandview, replacing Farm to Market Road 208 and a former route of FM 110.
FM 208 was designated on May 6, 1945, from Granbury via Acton to US 377 northeast of Granbury. On February 20, 1984, the portion from Acton to US 377 was transferred to FM 167. It was rerouted over an old route of FM 1192 to Cleburne. On February 25, 1985, FM 208 became part of FM 4.
