History in a Pecan Shell

Enloe began with the building of a church here in 1888, but it wasn’t officially a proper town until nine years later when space was donated to the railroad by J. A. Enloe. Also in 1897, the town opened a post office under Enloe’s name. The population at that time was reported to be around 100 residents.

Seven years later the town counted 273 residents and the Enloe Baptists rebuilt their church. 1914 reported 400 Enloens and a telephone system.

The town had most essential businesses and two cotton gins and the population had grown to 450 by 1929. Seven years later the number of people had decreased to 265.

Increased factory work for the WWII war effort drained off more of Enloe’s workforce and by the mid 1950s less than 200 people lived here. This figure fell to just 150 for the mid 1960s and was given as 125 for the 2000 Census.

    I have a couple of old pictures of the Enloe High School 6 man football team in 1938. I do not remember where I got them, but I bet Mr. Duncan who runs the Enloe museum would like them. I also do not have any names of the boys on each squad. - Joe Wooten, February 24, 2012
