Lennox Woods, a 1,400 acre preserve located along SH 37 in Red River County, north of Clarksville TX, is home to several rare plant and animal species. The old growth timber and floodplains is indicative of the environment that greeted the early settlers of Texas. Four generations of the Lennox family has stood guard over the biological wonder and originally acquired the property in 1863. Containing fully mature virgin timber, one post oak was aged at 300 years old by the Texas Forest Service.
