History on a Pinhead

The town dates from 1907 when it formed around a railroad switch off the Santa Fe mainline. Early history is unavailable at present, but it survived the Great Depression.

The earliest report on the town was 1945 when it was described as having a grain elevator, a store and gas station. No population figures are available until 1980 when the census reported 15 residents.
