History in a Pecan Shell

There isnít much known about this all-but-forgotten town. It had a functioning post office from 1885 to 1891 and by 1900 there was a twelve-student one teacher schoolhouse. It remained on maps into the 1940s but by the late 1980s all that was left was the community cemetery.


Photographer's Note:
Aldine, Texas

1 of 3 communities (Aldine, Reagan Wells and Heard) on the 8 mile stretch of FM-1051.

The old school & cemetery is all the evidence the town existed. There is a guest log by the cemetery gate that has a little history. I did see in the documents that Aldine did have a store at one time. Many unmarked graves and those that have stones appear to be made with local rock and all have deteriated to not being legible. I guess this would be considered a ghost town. The old school appears to be in pretty fair shape for it's age, but I guess as residences became fewer upkeep went with it. - William Beauchamp, June 2010
