    History in a Pecan Shell

    Settled near Poesta Creek, the community was initially known as Hatchers in the 1890s. A one teacher school opened in the 1890s, with less than twenty students, increasing to 23 by 1906.

    In 1915 a new school was constructed.

    Chase Field Naval Auxiliary Air Station was built in 1943 and forced residents to move. Today scattered residences between Beeville and the air station make up would could be thought of as a community although the proximity to Beeville prevents any businesses or town center.
