    History in a Pecan Shell

    Also known as Tiger Point, the name was coined by Phillip Haddox Coe who observed that the male residents “behaved like tigers.”

    A post office is said to have existed prior to the Civil War and the community had many prominent Washington County personalities living there. But its proximity to Brenham was a detriment to growth and by 1900 the town was gone. The land became a farm and its exact location is unknown.
