History in a Pinhead

The community of Klump appears on some maps, but not on others. The name is from a settling family. There was a Klump post office in operation from 1899 through 1903 with a Klump family member (Louis) as postmaster from the Fall of 1899 through 1900.

The land around Klump is today in cattle and hay. Residents are totally dependent on Brenham for all goods and services. There is no town center only scattered residences and an occasional business usually agricultural in nature.


Photographer's Note:

Since the community of Klump wasn't found, we're including photos from Bethlehem Cemetery, which once served the region in the late 1800s and provides a panoramic view of the Washington County countryside.
