History on a Pinhead:

Cañada Verde was settled in the 1860s and it seems nothing noteworthy happened for sometime. No population figures are available for the 19th century – or the 20th, either. It seems to have peaked during the Great Depression when the town had three stores, a church and school. After WWII, the school was consolidated with Floresville but the town holds on to its own identity.

Photographer's Note:
Not much here either. There are several modern homes in the area, but if there was anything left of the original town, then they all look like these dilapidated buildings. - Terry Jeanson, March, 2008
