Douglas is an abandoned town in eastern Smith County, located in the U.S. state of Texas.[1] , near the old Jamestown-Tyler road. In 1936, the town had one dwelling and four buildings which were part of a school for black students, as well as a cemetery and farms. The school was later incorporated into the Arp Independent School District, and Douglas was essentially abandoned by the 1970s.
