    History in a Pecan Shell

    Hurlwood is an amalgam from the names of early settlers Claude B. Hurlbut and W. M. Wood.

    The community has no 19th century history. It was first a switch on the railroad, although a post office soon opened in 1926. Population was meager with just fifty people in residence in 1940. A WWII Army Air Field training school was opened early in the 40s.

    By 1960 the population reached its zenith with 185 people and slowly declined after that. The 1980 population of 115 has been used through the 2000 census.
    Texas Escapes, in its purpose to preserve historic, endangered and vanishing Texas, asks that anyone wishing to share their local history, stories, and vintage/historic photos of their town, please contact us.
