History

The Railroads were pushing the frontier westward and the Trinity and Brazos Valley (T&BV) and the Houston and Texas Central (H&TC) were built between Houston and Dallas in 1904-1905 but the passed through Robert Rogers land about two miles west of Rogers Prairie. So on January 26, 1907, S.B. Phillips filed for record a plat of the new town, Normangee, located in the Southwest corner of the Robert Rogers land grant at the junction of the Old San Antonio Road and the two new railroads. When the Houston & Texas Central Railroad was being built through this region, the railroad officials placed a town every 8 miles. A small community known as Roger's Prairie existed two miles east of where the railroad line was built. Norman G. Kittrell was the County Judge of Leon County at the time. The railroad named the new town after Judge Kittrell. Since there was already a Norman, OK, the town renamed itself Normangee.
