History and terrain[edit]

Cross Junction and its environs consist of rain-fed streams and springs. It is the traditional home of the indigenous Shawnee, who had a settlement and court at Shawnee Springs. A few old farms in the area are owned mostly descendants of the founders of the European-American community, which dated from the 18th century. Some date back to the days when George Washington first visited the land and surveyed it.
