History in a Pecan Shell

The community has no 19th century history since it developed as a post WWII suburb. It laid its foundations in the late 1940s and incorporated in 1955. By 1960 the population was 783, more than doubling to 2,299 for 1970. Growth stabilized and the 2,841 people who lived here in 1990 had only increased to 2,983 by the 2000 Census.

Photographer's Note:
Some cities just don't have old buildings. in fact, some cities are new as of later than 1950 or so.....but since you do have them on your lists of towns, I thought it right that I at least account for, and give the town a "face" or photo identity. - Stephen Michaels
