History in a Pecan Shell

Despite the spelling, the towns name is pronounced "Tammany." This may be due to a misspelling on the application for a post office. Town promoter James H. Berry named it after New York's Tammany Hall - which may not have been a liability at the time it was named. Tamina was born with the arrival of the Houston and Great Northern Railroad in 1871. The town had its own post office by 1897 which closed during the Great Depression.

The population was 128 in 1904 and by 1925 it had been reduced to a mere 50. Tamina's students were sent to school in Conroe during the statewide school consolidations of the late 40s and early 50s.

Today the population is dispersed and the town is remembered by the Tamina Cemetery and three churches.
