History in a Pecan Shell

Settlement began with Agapito Sandoval, one of the sheepherders from New Mexico who came with Casimero Romaro.

In 1887 the Fort Worth and Denver City Railroad made it a switch on their line. In the early 1940s a sand and gravel operation opened here. There is no town center or much of anything. Today only the cemetery remains.

Photographer's Note:
"Ady is seven miles southeast of Tascosa, across the Potter County Line, just off FM 1061." - Barclay Gibson
