History in a Pecan Shell

The town was on the Texas-Mexican Railway and Agua Poquita Creek.

It was granted its first post office in 1884 but it closed the next year. The post office reopened in 1907, and lasted until 1932.

The population was estimated at only twenty-five in 1914 and twenty in 1948.

The Sweden school consolidated with the Benavides Independent School District in the 1950s and the town, like hundreds of others across the state, did not survive the change.

Neither the town - nor a cemetery is shown on detailed county maps.
