History in a Pecan Shell:
Settled in the 1850s, nothing much happened in Edna Hill for the first 50 years. According to the Handbook of Texas a school was in operation in 1900, so at least the town's children were educated while nothing continued to happen. No disasters occurred and no crimes were committed which must have pleased the residents. Even into the 1940s - nothing happened with such regularity that it became the norm.

WWII came and went - while Edna Hill still went about its quiet existence. The school merged with Dublin's school district in the late 40s and there was worry that things would now start happening now that something had finally happened.

The worry was proved unjustified as Edna slipped back into the quiet routine for which the town has now become famous.
