History in a Pecan Shell

AKA just plain Arroyo, the site dates from the 1860s when Mexican shepherds named it for its location on the Arroyo Colorado.

In 1904, Arroyo's school reported 24 students being taught by a single teacher. The community had a post office open from 1887 through 1907 and three years later there were just ten residents and two businesses. By the time the Great Depression came around, only a few residences comprised the community. Arroyo City still appears on the detailed TxDoT Cameron County map (if you look hard enough). The population is unknown.
