History in a Pecan Shell

Named for blacksmith John Grey Jolly, the town was formed just after the Civil War. Jolly donated land for the community's first school. In 1878 a school was constructed and by 1903 there were thirty-five pupils enrolled. From a mere 40 residents in 1940, the town increased to 15,000 by the 1990 Census. The city now extends into Travis County.
