History in a Pecan Shell

Tejon is Spanish word for raccoon.

It was a town, albeit a small one in the 1930s when the railroad had a stop there. The Handbook of Texas mentions a school and "several dwellings" at the site in 1936.

The 1948 county highway map is said to be the last one on which Tejon appeared. There doesn't appear to be so much as a cemetery at the site according to recent TxDoT maps.

Tejon, Texas Forum:

The area known as Tejon is a road now known as Alton Gloor road. There is a small cemetery that is still in use today. The area is commercialized and many new subdivisions now exist in the area. - Ida.Adeigbe, September 19, 2003
