The community was originally founded in 1873 under the name "Willow Springs" as stop on the Texas and Pacific Railway. The East Texas Oil Boom saw the town grow with a post office established in November 1932 and the name changed to "Greggton" around the same time. In 1920 in town had a population of 180. By 1936 the population had grown to 1500 with 125 business and by 1949 the population had grown to 2350. The town was annexed to Longview sometime in the early 1950s.[1]
