History in a Pecan Shell

Named after a nearby spring of the same name, the community was settled just prior to the Civil War.

The community has very little history available and no population figures at all. In the 1930 there were a few houses scattered around a church and a school but the school disappeared after WWII. The town had virtually disappeared by the 1990s - with just the cemetery, church and a few houses.

Photographer's Note:
Carroll Springs is essentially the church and cemetery. It is about 12 miles SE of Athens on CR 4600 about a mile east of Hwy 19.
