History in a Pecan Shell

Settled sometime after the Civil War, there isn't a lot of information available on Waldrop. According to the Handbook of Texas, a school, named after the teacher (Liles School) was in operation from the1870s through the 1890s. Around 1900 the school moved 1.5 miles north of the present Waldrop cemetery. In 1908 the school was moved again. This time the move was to a farm run by one Dud Waldrop - and the school was then renamed after him. The school operated until it was consolidated with the Beckville school.

Waldrop lost most of its population after WWII. Besides the church and cemetery, the rest of Waldrop consists of scattered houses.
