History in a Pecan Shell

Noxville's first resident was a man named Creed Taylor who built a stone house there in 1869. Other settlers came in the 1870s to settle nearby (4.5 miles east). In 1879 a storekeeper named Nox opened the town's post office. The Noxville school (circa 1880) was the first stone school in Kimble County.

In 1940 the school merged with the Harper ISD in Gillespie County. In 1911 the post office was moved west to the James River. By the 1920s, the town had a store and gas station. The post office closed its doors in 1942.

The population was fifteen or less until 1974, when it suddenly jumped to 75. By 1990 it had declined to only three people.
