|History in a Pecan
Point and Rabbit Hill were the separate communities that became one when the Houston
and Texas Central Railway arrived in 1871.
In 1883 the" town" was very
rural and it wasn't granted a post office until 1901.
Growth was non-existant
and the post office closed in 1907. It wasn't until the discovery of oil in 1921
that the post office was reestablished. The boom was short-lived. Nevertheless,
Currie had a population of 125 in 1958. The post office closed again sometime
prior to that date and by 1970 there were only 25 people - almost all of which
have since left.
