From Loop 288 in Denton, take FM428 east 4.2 miles to CR2153. Go west .3 miles to Green Valley Cemetery (on right hand side of road, adjacent to Green Valley Community Church).

Green Valley lies between the Elm Fork of the Trinity River to the east and Clear Creek to the southwest. Fertile soil, plentiful timber, and a small stream, Culp Creek, attracted early settlers to the area. The community was originally called Toll Town, possibly because of its location at the crossroads of the stage lines from Sherman to Fort Worth and McKinney to Fort Richardson. Its name was changed to Green Valley at the suggestion of Henry Clay Wilmoth, the teacher at the first subscription school. He applied for a post office for the community, which was granted in 1874. Around that time the town had a blacksmith shop, three stores, and a population of fifty. Green Valley began to decline after 1881, when the Texas and Pacific Railway bypassed it and the post office closed.
