History in a Pecan Shell

In 1903, a small store was in operation in northwest Madison County. The proprietor – one George Donaho applied for a post office and the authorities granted it under the name George, Texas.

A gin was built and was located to the rear of the now-expanded store. The population in the 1930s was given as 50. Several other businesses were in operation and it looked like there might be a future for George. But after the school was consolidated with Normangee, it began a decline. Both store and post office closed in 1954.

The population wasn’t available after 1959, when 50 people were still reported as living in George.
