    History in a Pecan Shell

    The community was born with the establishment of the Goose Creek Oilfield. It peaked in the mid 1930s with a population estimated at nearly 550 residents.

    Although it had been incorporated, it lost its separate status when it was absorbed into the Morrell Park subdivision (around 1940).

    Maps dating to the 1930s show homes and a school located along the railroad. In 1948, the former community joined Pelly, Goose Creek and older Baytown to become the newly formed greater Baytown.
