History in a Pecan Shell

Originally settled in 1850, it was first called Pieper Settlement after an early settler. The name change may have come about in 1879 when the community finally got its own post office. The town's new namesake was local landowner Luciano Bulverdo. The first post office closed in 1919, but reopened in Charles L. Wood's store in 1959. In recent years new subdivisions have been built nearby and the population has swelled to nearly 4,000.
