History in a Pecan Shell

Local landowner W. R. King had a son named Creston and it was Creston King who became the namesake of this community on the Texas and Mexican Railroad in 1902.

A post office opened in 1913 and the following year a cotton gin was opened. Although it was situated along the railroad, the population of the community never exceeded 25 persons. The post office closed in 1944 and the town's school merged with the Realitos ISD in the early 1950s.

The community was described as "consisting of a few scattered dwellings" by the 1970s and it has stoped appearing on maps.
