History in a Pecan Shell

The community has no 19th Century history. It was established in the late 1920s as a speculative investment by one R. C. Hopping. The origin of the name is not available. Within a year the fledgling community had two stores, a school, cotton gin and blacksmith.

The town’s history went unrecorded for decades, even without population figures. By the 1960s, the school had become a storehouse although there were “several businesses”reported.

The 2000 census reported eight residents at Hart’s Camp.

Photographer's Note:
It is difficult to describe just where it is. Maybe it is best to locate Fieldton and Hartcamp is 4 miles southeast at the intersection of FM37, FM 168 and CR 222, at the southern end of the confluence of FMs 37 & 168.

No road signs or cornerstone. - Barclay Gibson
