History on a Pinhead

The community grew around a switch on the Texas and New Orleans Railroad. Although no town center developed, there was a school and church. The region was settled by both Swedish and Polish immigrants.

According to the Handbook of Texas: “By the early 1990s only a few scattered farmhouses remained.”
