History[edit]

FM 707 was designated in 1946 from US 83 to the east boundary of Camp Barkley. This was formerly War Highway 7. In 1951, FM 707 extended to the Jones County Line, replacing FM 708 from SH 158 (now US 277) to the Jones County Line. Later that year, FM 707 extended to FM 605. In 1952, FM 707 extended further north to US 83, replacing FM 1227 on that route. In 1959, FM 707 extended east to FM 1750. In 1973, a spur connection was added. In 1995, the section from IH 20 to FM 1750 became an urban road.
