History in a Pecan Shell

Settlement began in the 1820s with members of Austin's original 300 settlers. The town of Frydek had to wait until the 1890s to be established.

Named after a Moravian city (Frýdek-Místek) the community was populated by Czechs who were farmers who branched out into cattle-raising. The community had a post office from 1901 until 1906. The population continues to be predominantly Czech.

From a population of just 25 residents in 1933 it actually gained population during the Great Depression - up to 75 by 1939. From the mid 1960s through 2010, the population has been reported at 150.
