History on a Pinhead

In the early 1880s Benjamin Reid opened a general store and the community that grew around it was named for local lawyer named N. J. Nash.

The town had a post office for the years 1883 through 1903. The population was given as 75 in 1941 and it's high-water mark seems to have been 1968 when 125 people called Nash home.
