History in a Pecan Shell

It's hard to imagine this busy intersection as once being a dairy and nursery center, but indeed, it was. Originally the site was granted to one J. Tilley.

In the mid 1890s, Oasis had a general store. Although early figures aren't available, there were enough people there to create the need for a cemetery which was in use by 1900.

Several dairies were in operation in the same time frame, but with the land taken up for grazing herds, the human population stayed lean. The population of Oasis was estimated as twenty in 1949, and continued to be reported at that level through the mid-1960s. The community was later annexed by Dallas.
