History in a Pecan Shell

James, Joseph, and William Eubank settled here in 1853 and arranged their homes in a semicircle in the still hostile region. Hence the name.

The nearness to the river allowed the development of a grist mill and the town prospered. There was a post office from the year 1857 through 1911.

The Kansas, Texas and Missouri Railroad (KATY) arrived in the 1880s which would’ve guaranteed prosperity for most towns, but its proximity to Georgetown, Taylor and Granger dampened growth.
