History in a Pecan Shell

Perrin dates from about 1870 when L. W. Perrin, settled here. His son Louis donated the land for the townsite. During the “Progressive Era” Perrin’s population had grown to 600 (1928) although a post office didn’t open until 1931. By 1933 the population had declined to 220, and the town looked as if it would become another casualty of the Great Depression. But the population grew to 350 and stabilized at that figure for decades.

This series makes it look like a disaster area. It mostly is, except for a brand new post office of which I didn't take a picture. - Mike Price, October 14, 2007
