History on a Pinhead

Information on settlement is hard to come by but the community had a post office in the 1880s. In 1890 one J. M. Bockius, a local rancher also served as postmaster. I896 seems to have been the peak of Sedan's existance with 300 people calling it home and three doctors. But by 1909, the community lost its post office and people started drifting away to other communities - primarily Gonzales and the nearer town of Yorktown.

By the time the Great Depression hit, Sedan had already been dropped from maps.
