    History in a Pecan Shell

    The town was platted on the property of Gibson Kuykendall, Texas Revolutionary War veteran and one of Austin's 300 original colonists. The town was named (in 1837) after Alamo defender William B. Travis whose memory was still very fresh in everyone's mind. Travis had a post office in operation from 1846 through 1881. Not being on a railroad line and the proximity to Bellville
    probably hastened Travis' decline.

    In the 1930s only the cemetery remained with a few people living nearby.
