History in a Pecan Shell

The name of the town is believed to be a corruption of Arenosa Creek.

The town was granted a post office in 1886 and had a population of 100 by 1890.

The post office closed in 1916 and a slow decline set in. By 1940 there were only a few residences and by the 1980s it was taken off of highway maps.
