History on a Pinhead

Settled in the 1870s, the town got off to a slow start. By 1890 the population was a mere 35 residents. Louis Lanham was a storekeeper that year and probably the town’s postmaster. The post office was in operation from 1884 until 1906. It reached its high-water mark in 1910 with 125 people and three businesses.

Little is known of the intervening years, but after WWII the population declined to only 30 residents and over time they, too, moved.
