History in a Pecan Shell

Lois developed in the late 1800s and prospered enough to be granted a post office for the years 1897 to 1904.

In 1936 Lois was thriving although the population was a mere 50 persons. It had two churches, and three businesses. In 1943 the Lois school was consolidated with another school district.

Population: Estimated 60 in 1963.
