    History in a Pecan Shell

    An exact date for settlement might be hard to find but by 1903 there was a school here for 38 pupils (taught by a single teacher). The community may have been hampered by its proximity to larger Thorndale, but it had enough people to maintain its own identity, even though there are no population figures available. The school merged with those in Thorndale shortly after WWII.
