History in a Pecan Shell

After a much-needed bridge was built here across the Brazos River in 1892, Judge N. M. Dennis saw the need (or opportunity) for a community here.

A post office was granted in 1895 but the town never developed beyond more than a "church and school” community. In the 1950s and 1960s the population briefly surpassed 100 and now sits just below that figure.
