Cresson is located just southwest of Fort Worth toward Granbury on US 377 at Hwy 171.

On the Hood County and Johnson County line, in 1988 the town had a population of about 200 and eight businesses and was primarily a ranching and retirement community. Two manufacturing companies were operating: Tex-Star Industries, which manufactures stucco, and a fertilizer company, Hyponex. Children in grade school are bused to Acton, and middle and high school students are bused to Granbury. Two museums-the Hal S. Smith Machinery Museum and Sturdy's Prairie Box Museum-have functioned in Cresson, but both are now closed. In 1990 the population was 208.
