    History in a Pecan Shell

    A farming community settled sometime after the Civil War, Horace had a population of only twenty in 1896 when it had two stores and a post office. Horace was dropped from county maps by 1936.

    Another town named Horace was settled during the 1920s in Hutchinson County.
