Videos about Fate History

The Fate Girls: A History of Fate Texas, stars Jo Leonard, Katherine Stevener, and Billie Stevenson, three of the six original “Fate Girls.” The girls were born and raised in Fate Texas in the 1920s and have been the unofficial keepers of the history of the town. They now tell of the historic past for future generations. The topics include the origin of the city name and the original location, the Zollner "Hobo Ranch,” railroad, cotton farming, the 1933 tornado, Church history, the Fate School District, World War II rations, modernization, and names of influential residents.


Below is a video recorded during a Brown Bag Luncheon hosted by the Rockwall County Historical Foundation in February 2005 of the "Fate Girls" giving a talk about Fate's history.
