History in a Pecan Shell

Georgia dates back to 1860 when it was known as Georgiaville and a post office operated under that name until 1867. A school was started in 1908, but was consolidated with a larger district, which was in turn consolidated with another still larger district.

Georgia and a small cemetery still show up on the detailed county maps published by the Texas Department of Transportation. There are still homes in the area and a single church.
