    History in a Pecan Shell

    Established shortly after the Civil War, the community was granted a post office in 1888. The 1890 census counted 250 residents and while that was a respectably sized town for the era, Emmett had no railroad connection.

    The post office closed in 1905 and many residents to nearby Frost, which did have a railroad connection. During the Great Depression, Emmett’s population fell to just over 100. Later, Emmett’s students were bussed to schools in Frost and Emmet became only scattered residences held together by a cemetery and church.
