History in a Pecan Shell

Victor's Station was the intended name but when a post office was applied for they learned another community held the name. Early settler Ector Owens was honored by having his name submitted (and accepted). The post office opened in 1886 and six years later the Texas and Pacific Railway arrived, making the town a shipping point. Ector had 218 people in 1904, swelling to 451 in 1926.
