History in a Pecan Shell

The community which was once known as Honey Bend now exists only as a cemetery. The town was settled by the 1880s and the name comes from a prominent twist in the Brazos River - an Oxbow lake in-the-making.

The community at its peak was hardly more than a school and church, but they did manage to form a cemetery association in 1932 to maintain the original graveyard.

James James, sometimes known as "Double Jimmy" was a local celebrity and 1812 War Veteran who is interred in the Gooseneck Cemetery.
