Farm to Market Road 235, or FM 235, in the eastern part of Texas (USA), runs about 10.58 miles (17.03 km) from an intersection with TX 110 in New Summerfield east past a multiplex intersection, then southward to an intersection with TX 204 near Reklaw. The road is located in east-northeast Cherokee County. Before 1951, a previous version of FM 235 was commissioned by Minute Order on June 12, 1945, and located in Jackson County north of Edna which went from TX 111 east 1 mile and west 2 miles. This use of FM 235 was cancelled on June 1, 1948 as mileage was used for the newly created FM 822.

FM 235 has no local street names. Mostly rural for all of its length, FM 235 passes by a landscape of rolling hills of trees and farmland. All of FM 235 has 2 lanes and no shoulders.

The original commissioning for FM 235 by Minute Order came on May 23, 1951. The road in that Order spanned 4.7 miles (7.6 km) from TX 110 eastward. Another Minute Order was added on November 20, 1951, this added 6.3 miles (10.1 km) more to the road. The road serves just the town of New Summerfield and comes close to Reklaw. The western terminus intersection connects to TX 110 which goes south to Rusk, Texas and north to Troup and Tyler; while the eastern terminus intersection connects to TX 204 which goes southeast to near Nacogdoches and northwest to Jacksonville. Besides intersections at various county roads, FM 235 has a brief multiplex with FM 2274, an intersection with FM 2420, and its termini at TX 110 and at TX 204.

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Cherokee County.
