    History on a Postcard

    Although there is no history currently available for the former community of Republic, proof of its existence is provided by a postmark in the collection of Doyle Armstrong who has shared this image so that Republic can be included on our list of ghost towns.

    Subject: Republic, Texas Ghost town
    "I collect old Texas Postmarks from towns that no longer have a post office and ran across a postcard from the town or community of Republic, Texas, dated Jan 31, 1908.

    From an historian in Llano County, I was told that the town of Republic (Ghost Town) was located about 8 miles North of Llano in Llano County off of highway 71. The land where Republic was located is on private land. There was a post office in Republic that opened in 1880, closed and opened back up a few times and finally closed for good in 1909. One day, I will visit the location and see if there are any remaining buildings etc." - Doyle Armstrong, Beaumont, Texas, June 07, 2013
