History in a Pecan Shell

Originally called Flat Woods around 1875, by the end of the decade a store opened and the towns first postmaster, John A. Huckabay, submitted his name on the application.

The town opened a cotton gin but when a bank opened in the 1890s - it closed soon after. The population was 174 at the turn of the 20th Century. An academy operated from 1900 to 1910 and the town was connected to Stephenville in 1927 by the construction of Highway 108. The town has lived a peaceful existence for over 100 years and the population hasn't changed that much from the 1900 figure.
