History in a Pecan Shell

Named to honor early settler Harrell Cundiff, the town was first settled in the mid-1850s. Indian raids and the threat of Indian raids caused residents to flee and it wasn't until the mid 1870s, that people started to return. A permanent townsite was established when a man named Walker Moore broke up his property and platted a townsite in the early 1890s.

Cundiff's post office was in operation from 1891 to 1918. The community also had four stores and a school along with a blacksmith and gin.

From 1940 to1988 the town's population figure was estimated to be 50 Cundiffites. It has since decreased to the 2000 estimate of 45.
