The land comprising the city of Krum was originally purchased by the Santa Fe Railroad in 1886. The intent of the purchase was to develop a new town named after railroad executive A.R. Krum. A small settlement to the south, called Jackson, was basically merged with Krum when Jacksonís school and church were moved to the new town. At about the same time, a railroad stop established Sanger as a community, and Aubrey was being rebuilt after having been almost destroyed by fire. These small towns were dependent on wheat production, cattle ranchers and the railroad. The construction of major roadways in the early part of the 20th century brought more residents and farmers to the area. Over time, with the development of the Dallas-Forth Worth metro, the infrastructure and residential neighborhoods grew, diversifying the population and the economy.
