History in a Pecan Shell

First known as Fuch’s Mill in the late 1860s. Wilhelm Fuchs (German for Fox) was the original owner. When a post office was applied for in 1874 the name Cypress Mill was submitted and it remained Cypress Mill ever since (the post office closed in the 1980s). The population reached 130 by the mid-1880s and cotton was the principal crop supplemented by wool and cattle.

Around the turn of the century, the town peaked with 200 residents but by 1940 it had decreased to a mere 30 people. By 1970 the community grew to 76 but again declined to 56 – where it remained for the 2000 census.
