History in a Pecan Shell

When the Danciger Oil and Refining Company opened their Pledger Dome gas field in 1933, the town came into being and the following year a post office was granted. By the end of that decade, the community reported 150 residents supported by two businesses.

From the 1970s through 1990, Dancigerís population was reported at 314 people. It has since increased to 357 (the 2000 census).
