Venus history:

Venus was first known as Gossip! The town, itself, did not really develop until the late 1880's. A man named J.C. Smyth purchased some land here and made up lots. He named it Venus for the daughter of a local doctor. In less than a decade, Venus became a successful town with thirteen businesses, churches, and even a small college. Venus incorporated in 1903 and continued to grow. The Great Depression of the 1930's combined with the large growth of the Dallas-Fort Worth area caused a large decline in Venus. By the early 1940's, the entire town was close to simply shutting down. However, persistent residents wouldn't let this happen, even donating money to the local drugstore so it would remain open. By the end of this decade, Venus had made a small recovery.
