History in a Pecan Shell

In 1903 Benjamin F. Quarton, opened a post office at his home.

He delivered the mail to Quarton's other residents - which numbered five in 1915.

The post office kept it's doors open until 1918 when mail was then routed through Dumas. And as Dumas grew - it drained off population from Quarton.

Detailed county maps show no sign of the former town of Quarton - not even a cemetery. The Dumas County TxDoT map does show several roads extending off into blank space.

Quarton, Texas Forum
