History in a Pecan Shell

The name was probably after Holy Roman Emperor Frederick Barbarossa by German settlers who arrived after the Civil War. A post office operated for a few months under that name in 1900. In 1933 the population was a mere 30 persons but by 1941 it had increased to 75.

Barbarosa Air Field was an auxiliary field during WWII
