History on a Pinhead

The town moved to Oriana (which became a ghost town in later years) around 1909 when the community was bypassed by the Stamford and Northwestern Railroad. It had begun some twenty years before and at its high point - had two stores and a cotton gin.

The nearby Antioch Baptist Church (est. 1895) managed to hold on until 1918. The community school (est 1897) served quadruple duty as a church, lodge and community center.
