History in a Pecan Shell

The community is said to be founded shortly after the turn of the century with the arrival of the Texas and New Orleans Railroad. Namesake John R. Trawick was a resident who donated land so that the community could be platted. In 1902 the community was granted a post office. Two years later, the first school was built.

Trawick had 100 residents by 1914 and tripled by 1929. But the economy was based on cotton production and when prices fell and the boll weevil arrived, Trawick felt the impact greatly. Trawick had 100 residents in the mid 1930s, where it has remained through the year 2000.
