History in a Pecan Shell

Settled in the 1870s and named after a geographic feature, East Mountain was known as Savannah when a post office opened under that name in 1902. It closed within three years and the name East Mountain became official.

The town experienced an oil boom in the 1930s, and the town's school and churches all had producing wells on their property.

The population in 1940 was an estimated 75 persons. The town is now a bedroom community of Longview, just across the line in Gregg County.
