History on a Pinhead

Although a post office was granted to this tiny community as early as 1887, there were only ten reported residents in the 1890s.

There was a store and blacksmith, but Goodman’s proximity to
Bastrop dampened chances of growth. The post office closed by 1914 and thereafter Goodman melted into oblivion.
