History in a Pecan Shell

Zachariah "Zack" Guess opened a post office in his store in 1904. The operation was soon sold (1906) but stayed open under the new management until the Great Depression finished it and the building was dismantled for use of the materials.

Twenty-five people reportedly lived in the town from 1925 until 1950. A school was shown on 1948 maps, but was likely consolidated around that time. Zack no longer appears on county maps.


Photographer's Note:
The only hint of the community we could find there was the presence of a neighborhood of that name (misspelled.) (See photo below.) Pretty much just trees and pastures besides that.
