    History in a Pecan Shell

    Located just two miles east of the Stonewall County line, Sagerton came into being in 1905. The town’s namesake was local landowner W.M. Sager who donated land for the community.

    With a connection on the Kansas City, Mexico and Oriet Railroad, Sagerton became a shipping point for beef, chicken and cotton.

    A second railroad (the Stamford and Northwestern) arrived in 1909 although it was short-lived.

    Two devastating fires (1917 and 1926) ruined Sagerton’s plans for prosperity. From a population of 300 in 1940, it shrank to 115 by 1980 where it remained for the 2000 census.
