History on a Pinhead

Although it was named for a rancher called Glen, nobody seems to remember if that was his first or last name. What is known is that “Glen” drove cattle here from Waco to graze for the winter months.

The community became a small ranching center and had three businesses and a church in the 1940s. The population peaked at seventy-five around 1940. The 1980 count is said to have been forty – the number that has been given ever since.
