History in a Pecan Shell

Originally called Possum Trot, the town was granted a post office which was open from 1902, through 1914. It's assumed that the name was under Saturn and not Possum Trot since postal authorities were known to hold decorum over quaint.

The only population figures available were from 1914 when 35 Saturnites resided there. Saturn had a telephone connection to Gonzales plus a general store, grocery and blacksmith. By 1965, there were only an estimated 15 people living there and that number was repeated throughout 1990 and 2000.

The county highway map shows a cemetery at Saturn and there is a community building as well.
