History on a Pinhead

Information on this small community is hard to come by. It opened a post office in 1880 that stayed open about three years, opening a second in 1907, the latter being called Sarco Creek. This one held on through 1923.

TxDoT shows the town as nothing more than a rural cemetery on the Goliad County map, although the population has been estimated at 78 (2000).
