Helpful Information for Residents
WELCOME TO RHOME!
The information you find here is to help not only our existing residents, but also our new neighbors who have chosen to make Rhome their home!
Rhome is a wonderful town, located at the intersection of Hwy 287 and Hwy 114 in south Wise County. The city is full of small-town charm and the staff teams work hard to support the Council’s goal of maintaining our uniqueness even as we welcome new growth to the ‘Crossroads of the Metroplex’.
Here is an excerpt from our History Page, check it out in its entirety here:
“Rhome is on U.S. Highway 287/81 twelve miles southeast of
Decatur in southeastern Wise County. A community known as
Prairie Point, located at the crossroads of two stagecoach lines
near the site of present Rhome, was established in the late
1850s by a group of Missourians. One of these new settlers,
Samuel Sheets, owned land near the crossroads and in 1858
began to lay out and sell town lots
