History in a Pecan shell

Zana was granted a post office in 1886, and by 1896 there were fifty people calling the community home. The town had a general store and a sawmill in 1914, but by 1916, the post office closed.

By the 1930s only a few people remained and the town was dropped from maps. When Sam Rayburn Reservoir was constructed in the 1960s, Zana became one of Texas' submerged ghost towns.
