on a Pinhead
Rancher John Howland Wood owned the Bonnie View Ranch here before it was split
into smaller plots (1907-08) to provide farms for arriving immigrants
community that sprang up included a school, cotton gin and store (as well as one
pool hall). The town seems to have survived the boll
weevil, the Great Depression but not, perhaps, the postwar rural exodus. In
the late 1940s Bonnie View was down to a just a few farms served by two businesses.
By the 1990 census there were just 25 residents but the nineties were kind to
Bonnie View and the 2000 census reported a quintupling (plus) to 135 residents.
