HistoryEdit

SH 153 was originally designated on March 19, 1930 along a route from Valley Mills to Temple as a renumbering of SH 36A. This route was rerouted so that its south end was at Belton later. This route was cancelled on June 15, 1935.[2] On October 22, 1935, SH 153 was restored.[3] On January 18, 1937, SH 153 was cancelled.[4]

The current route was designated on May 16, 1988, replacing FM 53.[1][5]
