History in a Pecan Shell

One of the more unusual place names in Texas, it stems from the grisly discovery of an infants skull left on Babyhead Mountain by hostile Indians. A town developed on the site and even had its own post office from 1879 to 1918. At one time the town hosted a county voting precinct and up until the late 1960s, it still had a population. As late as 1990 twenty residents were counted but all thatís left today is the cemetery and the historical marker.
