History in a Pecan Shell

Named for an existing body of water just east of the present site, Poolville was founded in the early 1880s with a post office opened in 1883.

The population reached a high of about 500 residents for the 1920 census but the Great Depression took its toll. The 1950 census showed 350 people which declined to 230 for both 1980 and 1990. It has slowly increased to 520 right around the 1920 high-water mark.
