History on a Pinhead

Thelma was established around 1900 with a post office being granted six years later. The San Antonio, Uvalde and Gulf Railroad arrived six years after that and Thelma was made a stop.

From a population of 300 in 1914, it declined to just 25 people by 1940 and in the early 1990s it was designated a dispersed rural community. Forty-five people were enumerated for the 2000 Census, insuring that Thelma is still remembered for now.
