History on a Pinhead

The community had been granted a post office in 1885 which closed sometime after 1915. Today the community once again has a post office as well as a high school and the historic Salem Cemetery on spur 106.

Sayers remains on the state map although theres no discernable town center. Several business line the highway including the hub of activity a convenience/ grocery store/ gas station.

After WWII the town lost most of its business due to its proximity to San Antonio.
