History in a Pecan Shell

Presley's story is short. A store was opened by one William R. Presley. He applied for a post office and served as postmaster after it was granted in 1901. It closed in 1904 and sometime between then and now, the town disappeared.


Texas Escapes, in its purpose to preserve historic, endangered and vanishing Texas, asks that anyone wishing to share their local history and vintage/historic photos of their town, please contact us.

Subject: Presley, Texas

I was wondering if you could give me some information on an old Texas ghost town called Presley, Texas. If you could give me directions to drive to Presley I would really appreciate it a lot. - John Hendricks, October 25, 2011
