CoServ on the Road Tour 2024: Krum
It’s only fitting to begin the 2024 CoServ on the Road Tour where it all began 87 years ago on a two-lane road north of Krum.
Here, along Farm to Market Road 2450, on Feb. 15, 1938, Denton County Electric Cooperative (DCEC) energized its first line, bringing electricity to our first Members.
Today, Krum honors its history while building a bustling, modern downtown.
While Krum always has an eye to its rich past, the growth ensures there’s plenty to look forward to in the future.
THINGS TO DO:
Krum’s first one-of-a-kind entertainment venue boasts an on-site restaurant serving delicious barbeque and burgers, a large selection of cold drinks, and an event lineup to rival the bigger cities.

Mayor Rhonda Harrison describes Krum as a tight-knit community on the verge of a growth spurt and expects the retail base to grow soon. She said it’s inevitable that many more farmers will sell their land and more development will be coming – it’s up to the town council and city staff to ensure the growth is done in a smart responsible manner.
“I’ve lived here for 30 years now and I can’t imagine living anywhere else,” Rhonda said.
