A Visit to Desert, Texas

Photographer's Note:
Never was much to this place as far back as I remember, and part of that has been replaced by a modern gas station/store. There is a cemetery south of 'town'. - Mike Price, September 2009


History in a Pinhead


The community was named after the creek of the same name and settled around 1890. A post office opened in 1893 but was discontinued after 11 years in service. The estimated population has never exceeded 100 and from the 1930s through the 2000 census it has continued to be given as 25.
