History on a Pinhead

Settled in the last quarter of the 19th the community had enough people to justify a post office in 1892 even though it only lasted about 20 years.

Life around Ola was quiet and from 72 residents in 1900 it dipped to a mere 30 for the 1910 census. It reported 72 again from 1930 through the mid 1960s when it fell again. From 1970 to 2000 the estimated population has been 50.

A Visit to Ola:

Photographer's Note:
Not much here. One business, one church. Church Of Christ with an apparent old and new building. One cemetery with a type of fencing that I had never seen before with names in each section. - Mike Price, August 2009
