History in a Pecan Shell

In 1904 the St. Louis, Brownsville and Mexico Railway was completed and the King Ranch operated the site as a shipping point. It never developed into a town but was one of the ranches division headquarters.

After WWII Norias had the railroad depot and a school for ranch families. The cemetery remains but the “town” only appears today as an entry point to the King Ranch.
