The town of Joshua was recorded and surveyed in 1880 and was first organized when the railroad line was extended through Joshua in 1881. Joshua was originally Caddo Oak but the Postal Service would not accept the name because another town in Texas already called that. When Joshua's first postmaster received the notice, Dr. DB McMillen was present and offered the name of Joshua.
