History on a Pinhead

The town appeared sometime before 1909 alongside the tracks of the Pecos and Northern Texas Railroad. The only population figures available are from 1933 when a mere 10 residents were present, 1949 which showed a total of 20 and 1980 which reported 25. That number has remained the same through 2000, although the town has been dropped from the detailed TxDoT Dawson County map.
