As history has it, John Cresson, the cities namesake, visited this area with a wagon train prior to the Civil War. Years later, he returned to open a General Store which became a stagecoach hub with routes connecting Waco, Cleburne, Granbury and Stephenville. When the railroad came through the region, stagecoach lines became obsolete. In 1887, The Fort Worth and Rio Grande Railroad connected Cresson with Granbury. That same year, Cresson was granted a Post Office. Cressons population at this time was around 35. In 1896, Cressons population increased to an even 100 people.
