History in a Pecan Shell

It is thought that Mrs. Minnie Slaughter Veal is the town's namesake. It is believed that the town started in 1880 when Christopher Columbus Slaughter established a ranch just east of present-day Vealmoor. Life at Vealmoor appears to have been quiet.

The town had a post office by 1926 but no population figures were available. The1947 population figure was a mere 20 people which peaked at 190 in the mid 1960s. The post office had closed by 1980 and the population remained at 179 - a figure that's been used ever since.
