History in a Pecan Shell

Named after a huge tree that grew in or near the town’s main street, Postoak developed in the late 1870s. It acquired a post office in that decade and the town had most essential businesses by the 1880s. The community enjoyed a peaceful history without any disasters, feuds or calamities. The population has been consistant from the 30s through the 70s – just above 100 residents. It declined in 80s – reaching 79 for the 1990 Census – the same number reported for the year 2000.


A Visit to Postoak, Texas

Photographer's Note:
Postoak Texas - Appears to have once supported a small business district. Certainly more than any of the many small 'towns' I visited today, at least more of the buildings are still there. The small white building appears that it might have been a church at one time. - Mike Price, September 2009
