History in a Pecan Shell

Sometime shortly after 1900, a town grew up around the schoolhouse. The origin of the school’s name has been lost to history, but it had to have been a colorful story.

During the Great Depression the town had the church, school, cemetery, and a few houses.

The school merged with the Kerens school but the church and cemetery remain.

The Long Prairie cemetery is the one closest to the former town – shown on the detailed TxDoT Navarro County map.
