History on a Pinhead

The community come about with the discovery of the nearby Pleak oilfield in the 1920s. About 150 students attended the school in the mid 1920s, although no early population figures are available. The town incorporated in 1980 as the Village of Pleak and the population went from 746 in 1992 to the current 947.
