History in a Pecan Shell

The name had originally been Acorn in the 1870s when the town was formed.

The post office opened in 1881 with Dan Easterly Sr. as postmaster, but when the railroad came to town (The International-Great Northern) a new post office was formed and the name changed for the new post master (Dan J. Easterly Jr.).

The population had been 700 people before WWI and by 1930 it was down to 250. By the 60s it was down to 200 and currently it is about 61.
