History in a Pecan Shell

Established in 1912, the town name is thought to be the surname of a local family. A post office was granted in 1913 and the town later suppported a store, bank, and a hotel which is said to have been moved from Hurley, Texas.

In an old familiar story, the town was bypassed by the railroad who decided in favor of Muleshoe. The Janes post office moved to Muleshoe in 1914, and when Muleshoe became county seat, the Janes community joined the long list of Texas ghost towns.
