History in a Pecan Shell

The community was once known as Dacus (not to be confused with the current town in Grimes County). In 1893 the town applied for a post office and since Gustav Beyer filled out the application, he named it after himself. In 1896 Beyersville had a population of just 15 but it grew to 100, remaining there through the 30s until 1970.

The town's school had opened four years previously as Dacus, but they too, adopted the new name in 1897. The post office closed in 1909 and the school merged with those in nearby Taylor in 1950. The population figure of 75 residents has been used since 1970.
