History in a Pecan Shell

Oak Forest reached its high water mark (population-wise) about 1896 with 200 residents. There was a blacksmith, a hotel and a general store as well as a piano teacher and a doctor. The Handbook of Texas reports that they "enjoyed daily mail delivery by 1914" and that "Thereafter its population declined sharply." We have to wonder what was in those letters.

There has been no business conducted in Oak Forest since 1965 and the scattered resident population adds up to about 25.
