This community was originally settled in 1852, when the railroad reached the area northeast of Cleburne in central Johnson County. It was initially known as Elm Grove, but the post office that opened here in 1894 was called Keene. That same year, the General Conference of Seventh Day Adventists opened a school here to train ministers, and the assembly hall was built on the campus of Southwestern Union College. The school grew to become Southwestern Adventist University.
