    History in a Pecan Shell

    Named for President Woodrow Wilson, the community began life in the early years of the 20th Century. The first school was built by 1917 and due to its proximity to Lubbock, growth was slow. First population figures come from after WWII when it had reached an even 100 residents.

    By the 1970s, the community had no businesses and the population had fallen to eighty. In the late 1980s there were a couple of businesses and the population grew to 85 for both the 1990 and 2000 census.
