History in a Pecan Shell

Settled in the late 1840s around the the Enon Baptist Church (1848), a school was built sometime before 1900, and by 1906 there were two schools teaching just over 200 students. A post office named an early settler named McPeek was opened in 1903 and closed two years later.

Throughout the Great Depression, Enon kept enough people to still call itself a town but after WWII the residents moved and the school merged with the one in Harmony.

Today, the estimated population is 204.
