History in a Pecan Shell

There is no history currently available

Photographer’s Note:
The map says Exum but the old tank sign reads Exum Switch. There was no road sign.

Strange about the ambiguity of this strange little ghost. Your map showing Exum in Moore has Spur due west in Hartley, right where my Exum is. Notice a second Spur on your map just above Wilcoe. (I am still using my old scroll-loaded ProMap for Windows 3.1.) Whatever the name, Google Maps has the scale house and tanks in Hartley County.
