History in a Pecan Shell

Established in the final months of the 19th Century, not a lot of history was produced here. Always short on people due to its proximity to Edna, El Toro is remembered by this postal cover from the John Germann Collection.

The community still had four businesses as late as 1948 but being surrounded by large land holdings, smaller plots were unavailable for families. El Toro peaked many years ago and is now designated a "dispersed community."
