Homes for sale in Krum, TX
When the sprawl of the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area moved northward bringing suburban home seekers in increasing numbers to the smaller cities, Krum was no exception to the influx of new residents. Located seven miles northwest of Denton in west central Denton County, Krum offers close proximity to larger urban centers yet enough distance from them to maintain its small town identity. Krum was home to only a few hundred people in the late 80's but now hosts upwards of 2000 residents who enjoy the city's rural suburban atmosphere and down home Texas style. Krum is a family oriented community with easy access to Interstate Highway 35, making commuting to city jobs convenient for its residents. The city is an appealing spot for those looking to settle on the outskirts of the DFW's urban centers. Krum is known best for its exceptional high school basketball program and its omission of a high school football program (a rarity for small Texas towns). Students living in Krum attend schools in the Krum Independent School District.
