History on a Pinhead

The town’s post office opened in 1897 although it closed its doors just eight years later. In the mid 1930s there was a presence on local maps that showed two businesses, but that was then. The local school was consolidated with Deport schools.

Hoover, Texas Today

Photographer’s note:
“This is just a name on a map as there is virtually nothing there now. It was even hard to find with my GPS map system. It is just an intersection of various one-lane, back-country gravel roads.  It is a peaceable place as there is only a scattering of residences and farm buildings. 

If any one is interested in seeing this place it is located 3-miles due east out of Pattonville on the Pattonville-Hooverton Road.  The sign says Lamar roads 15100 and 15170 but, you had better have some good county maps and know what you are doing to find it.” - Gerald Massey, September 2010
