    History in a Pecan Shell

    Everman dates from the early to middle 1850s. A tiny community called Oak Grove occupied the site, but with the arrival of the railroad (the International-Great Northern) in 1904, it was renamed to honor engineer John W. Everman. Postal service commenced in 1905 and a school district opened the following year.

    During WWI, Everman was one of three selected towns to become a training school for pilot training. Both the Canadian Royal Flying Corps and the United States Signal Corps, Aviation Section shared the tiny airfield. In the mid-1920s Evermanís population was reported to be around 138 people.

    A munitions building during the war was converted into a school after Armistice Day. This building received a plaque from the historical Commission in 1976. From a minuscule population of just 450 people, in the mid 1950s, Everman has swelled to over 5,000 residents by the mid 1970s.
