History in a Pecan Shell

Carney H. Coulter received a land grant here in 1838 for being a resident prior to the signing of the Texas Declaration of Independence. He arrived in 1840 to claim his grant. It wasn’t until 1875 when a post office was opened under the name Sublime.

The San Antonio and Aransas Pass Railway arrived in the 1880s, connecting Hallettsville
with Eagle Lake. A townsite was donated by one Robert Miller, who retained the name Sublime. Neighboring towns of Rock Island and Sheridan were better suited for farming and soon stole Sublime’s chance at prosperity. The population was only 80 by 1950 – where it has remained more or less through the rest of the 20th Century.
