History in a Pecan Shell

Named after one of the early settlers, Whitfield began in the early 1890s.

At one time Whitfield had both Methodist and Baptist churches and a two-room school named Price which consolidated with the school at Kress in 1948. The post office closed in 1919 and the only population figure available was in 1947 when 15 people were living there. The Baptist church moved to Claytonville in the early 60s and only the Methodist church and a community center remained by the 1980s.
