History in a Pecan Shell

Although the name of the community has been lost to history, this site was the “east point” of it. Settlement dates to the 1870s.

The next historic blip to be recorded is the establishment of the school in the mid 1890s. The population of the community was reported as 25 during the Great Depression and after 1940 no figures at all were available until the 2000 Census when 40 East Pointers were reported.
