History in a Pecan Shell

A post office opened in Utica in 1890 when the population was an estimated 100 persons. The figure of 100 was still in effect when the post office closed in 1905. The map above was published in 1906 but still shows the town. Utica disappeared completely from maps and from Smith County records.

Utica Texas Forum

I believe that the population for Utica is still here just South East of Red Springs 4-way Crossing, today part of Utica serves as home to the Werner's Tiger Creek Wildlife Refuge (www.tigercreek.org) and several homesteads (About 15 home sites in all). The original post office was torn down and reconstructed into a Rock House (Iron Ore) now known as the Mullins House. - Brian Werner of Tiger Creek Wildlife Refuge, March 02, 2005
