3. Cotton was the predominant crop until the 1950s; now ranching is predominant.

4. Sedan Public School was operating circa 1890 to 1947 when the school consolidated with Weimar.

5. During the cotton era, farmers hauled their cotton to the gins in Weimar or Ammannsville; they purchased their goods in Weimar.
