History on a Pinhead

The town was founded on land belonging to Frank L. Ermis, a Bohemian farmer, merchant and cotton buyer who established the town after moving from Fayette County. The post office was opened in 1894 with Mr. Ermis as postmaster, but closed in 1899 after Mr. Ermis bought land near Engle, Texas. The 1896 population of Hermis was given as 25. The community was a shipping and banking point and received its mail semi-weekly. By the mid 1930s Hermis was dropped from the county map of Gonzales County.

Hermis was suggested for inclusion by Richard Schumann, Great Grandson of Frank L. Ermis, founder of Hermis, Texas.
