Edom is a quaint village located in Van Zandt County in northeast Texas. As of the 2011 census, the population was 375 people. Edom is known for its' annual Festival of the Arts. Edom was first established several miles from its present site in 1849. In 1855 the post office moved one mile south of the present town site and was renamed Edom. Edom became a stagecoach stop and local saloons regularly filled with lumberjacks, freighters, and tradesmen. Sometime later the town was moved again to its present location. By 1860, Edom became to become more established and contained a Baptist church, a Methodist church, a hotel, a Masonic lodge, a sawmill, a tan yard, a wagon factory, and a boot, shoe, and saddle shop. According to city's website, Edom schools, which opened in 1866 with children of former Indian captive Cynthia Parker in attendance, enrolled 130 pupils in 1904. By 1914 the town had a cotton gin and four general stores. In the 1960s, Edom became a mini-Mecca for artisans of pottery, silver jewelry, glassware, macramé, and leather crafts. Each October, the town hosts the annual Festival of the Arts. The area's artisans gather in a meadow a short distance from downtown to show off their work. There's also live music, a free children's art workshop and a wide variety of food.

Edom Weather & Climate

Northeast Texas Piney Woods Region has a humid subtropical climate zone. This region receives more rainfall than any other region in the state - more than 60 inches annually. While coastal sections see the most cloudy days statewide, northern sections see the most sunny days. This area is prone to severe thunderstorms and tornadoes, generally in the springtime. The heat of summer is intensified by high humidity. During winter and spring along the immediate coast, temperatures are kept cool by relatively cool Gulf waters. In late winter and early spring, dense fog, called advection fog, can form when warm air moves over the cool shelf waters. The region is also vulnerable to hurricanes, although plenty of warning is generally given for these types of storms.
