History on a Pinhead

Hulver was Hall County’s first post office south of the river. Opened in 1891, the post office was named for the middle name of William Hulver Meador of nearby Newlin, Texas.

Hulver was the site of the Mount Nebo school, also the first (school) south of the river. The post office closed in 1898. It reopened about twelve years later and closed for good in 1920. Hulver’s school closed in 1930. Although earlier estimates are unavailable, by 1947 there were around 20 residents served by a single store. By the 1980s only a cemetery was left at the former townsite.
