History in a Pecan Shell

Founded on the James Smith survey, the land was transferred to James Pinckney Henderson in 1852. The predominantly German-immigrant town was granted a post office in 1880. The name that was submitted was Womack Ė but it isnít known who the town was named after. The post office closed its doors in 1906. Little is known of events through the 20s and 30s, but the estimated population in prior to WWII was 40 residents. Shortly after the war it was reduced to only 20, but was reported as 25 for the last quarter of the 20th century.
