History in a Pecan Shell

Mulberry was named after the fruit trees found there and was established in the early 1880s, although initial settlement had been over 30 years before. A post office opened in 1886 but closed 20 years later. Mulberry had a store, a church, two cotton gins, a blacksmith, and two gristmills. Earlier estimates are not available, but during the Great Depression, the population was estimated at 89 people.
