History in a Pecan Shell

The first settlers were the Atkinson brothers (W. I. and T. S.), who established their families in dugout homes in1890 and planted cotton.

A post office was established in 1902 and a school, store and cotton gin all began operations in 1904. A telephone wire strung on a barbed wire fence connected Quail with Wellington. In 1910 the Quail Feather was first published. A new school was built in 1927 and the town's population peaked in 1930 with 300 people.
