History on a Pinhead

Rios was formed when the post office opened in 1938. The town's first postmaster was Felipe V. Rios, however the town is believed to have been named in honor of Calletonio Rios, who settled in the area in the 1890s. The town has been shown on maps from the 1940s as La Garcia, Texas but was corrected on maps from the 50s. The population of Rios during the 1940s was around 75, a figure it has used ever since.
