History in a Pecan Shell

Eylau was a very early settlement under the Republic of Texas. It was established by a man named Collin Akin soon after the Battle of San Jacinto.

The tiny community managed to obtain a post office in 1885 which kept its doors open for ten years.

The only population figures are from the 1890 census when an estimated thirty residents called it home. It's proximity to Texarkana prevented growth and by the end of the Great Depression, Eylau had disappeared as a stand-alone community.
