History on a Pinhead

The community appeared around the turn of the 20th century. Due to its proximity to Hearne, growth didn’t stand a chance and the town was content to exist with church and school. Soon after opening, it was decided that even the school wasn’t necessary and it closed.

What little history Black Jack experienced is held in the Robertson County history books and the town is considered a “dispersed community.”
