History in a Pecan Shell

Sometimes known as Dye Mound, the community was settled around 1880. A post office was granted in 1884 and remained open until 1905. No population figures are available for most of Dyes history but its said that until recently, the town never had more than 60 people living there. The 2000 Census reported an all-time high of 200 residents.

Photographer's Note:
This is Dye, what there was of it. The old church is named Dye Mound but all the maps have it as Dye. Not much there. Couldn't even find the cemetery. - Barclay Gibson
