McLendon-Chisholm is on State Highway 205 six miles southeast of Rockwall in south central Rockwall County. It began as two separate settlements in the mid 1800’s, McLendon’s and Chisholm, apparently named after prominent landowning families. By around 1900 the farm settlement had about 150 residents and nine businesses. Late 1969 the two communities incorporated as McLendon-Chisholm. From there on, the town grew steadily, probably because of the overflow of nearby metropolitan areas such as Rockwall. Its population increased from 150 in early ’70’s to 480 in the 1980s, and it supported several small businesses. In 1990 the population was 646. The population grew to 914 by 2000.
