History in a Pecan Shell

The community was first settled by buffalo hunters Thomas Price and J.J. Murray in the mid 1870s. The community was granted a post office in 1880 and named after Murray. Murray was perhaps too close to the county seat to develop on its own and although early figures arenít available, as late as 1980 there were only 29 residents. It has increased for the 2000 census to 45.
