    Photographer's Note:
    The only hint of Hiner that I had was the cemetery on Hiner Road. It is about 1-1/2 miles NE of Dennis or about 11 miles SW of Weatherford
    . Kind of hard to find.

    History in a Pecan Shell

    Historical Marker:
    (On Hiner Road, off Old Dennis Road, 12 mi. S of Weatherford)

    According to local tradition the community of Hiner was established mainly through the efforts of James J. Barnett who settled in Parker County in 1857. Area family legends and accounts of Barnett helping newcomers with transportation and temporary housing abound. Wade Chapel Methodist Church, built on land donated by Mary W. Wade adjacent to the Hiner Cemetery about 1870, served as a school and community center; the Reverend James Hiner was its first minister. The cemetery, with graves dating to 1872, contains the graves of at least seven veterans of the American Civil War.
