History on a Pinhead

Since the community was surrounded by the huge Dull's Ranch, the name was, perhaps, inevitable.

The Dull Brothers sold their ranch in 1901 and the land sold in tracts. Los Angeles and Fowlerton were two other towns formed by this break-up.

Established in 1912, it soon had a post office and was on the tracks of the San Antonio, Uvalde and Gulf Railroad. The town underwent a change of name in 1915 to Nettaville (no explanation available) and although the post office closed under that name, the community was still marked on maps as Dull into the 1960s.
