Population is exploding in Grayson County, largely due to industrial growth in both Sherman and Denison. The small city of Dorchester is primed to become an in-demand address with its location between Sherman and Gunter. Centurion American Development Group is beginning construction this week on a sizeable development, Cottonwood, and will bring an impressive array of builders to create this master-planned community.



This 678-acre development sits just north of McBee Road and extends all the way to FM 902. Cottonwood will include approximately 2,156 residential lots spread among the five phases of the development. Homebuilders currently under contract for the first three phases of the development include DR Horton, Beazer Homes, Pulte and M/I Homes. The first lots of phase 1 are planned to be delivered to homebuilders in late Q1 2026.


Cottonwood will offer a wide range of community features, including two amenity centers with open spaces and trails. Additionally, there is land allocated for two schools to be built within the neighborhood including adjacent park space.


“As the economic engine in Grayson County accelerates, we are proud to help facilitate the growth of communities to support the skilled workforce these high-tech employers will require,” said Sean Terry, VP of Entitlements at Centurion American Development Group. “It is a real honor to be helping lead Dorchester into this next phase of growth.”


Cottonwood will be Centurion American’s second development in Grayson County, following the Bridges at Preston Crossing in Gunter.
