History in a Pecan Shell

Wall had been known by three names before 1906. It was first called Lipan School, followed by Little School, before the school association was dropped and it was called Murray's Store.

The town was first settled in 1886 when J. C. and Lou Bell Bunnell arrived. In keeping with tradition, storekeeper J.M. Wall applied for a post office in his establishment and modestly submitted his name. The post office was granted in 1906.

Although the name had once been "Murray's Store." little is known of that period.

Wall peaked in 1920 when 250 residents were counted. The 1930 census recorded only 120 residents. From 1980 to 2010 the population was given as 200.
