History in a Pecan Shell

Originally known by the name of Wayland, Texas, the exact date of settlement is not known. The community had a respectable population of 200 in 1880 served by a flour mill, two stores and a cotton gin.

After reaching a peak in 1900, the town started into a decline and although it has managed to keep an estimated population of 100, little of the town remains except for a church, cemetery and a community center.
